2SLGBTQ+ PEER SUPPORT & RESOURCE LINE
You Matter is a non-crisis peer support and resource line for 2SLGBTQ+ community members in Calgary, run by Calgary Outlink. You can call about anything you’re looking for support with, including identity, relationships, coming out, transitioning, community, resources, and more!
The support line launched on September 6th, 2022, and is operated by Outlink volunteers. The hours of operation are Monday - Thursday, 5:00 - 9:00 PM.
Our support line is currently a phone-only service (text and chat options will be coming in Spring 2023). The line is open to callers of any age and identity who are looking for support or resources.
Please note that this support line is a pilot project and is volunteer-run. Depending on volunteer availability and how busy the line is, you may need to call back later or on another day if your call isn't answered. Because this is a pilot project, the hours of operation may change at any time. Any changes to the line will be communicated here.
As stated above, this is a non-crisis peer support line. If you're experiencing a crisis, accessing crisis resources can be an option.
