Distress Centre Golf Tournament, Youngs Insurance, Ontario

9th Annual Distress Centre Golf Tournament

Proceeds from the golf tournament support the Distress Centre of Niagara which is an amazing organization assisting people who need emotional wellness support.  The centre provides many services including:

  1. Distress Centre Crisis Line – This s a free, confidential telephone support service with highly skilled volunteers that assist anyone in need in the Niagara Region.
  2. Mental Health and Addictions Access Line – Volunteers provide immediate support and explore services with the caller to find the most appropriate help for them. 

The Distress Centre also focuses a great deal of their efforts on suicide prevention.  Often times, people experiencing a crisis perceive their problem as inescapable and feel like they have no control.  The Distress Centre is there for anyone needing support in these situations. 

We invite you to join us at the tournament for what is going to be a really fun day for a truly amazing cause!  For more information about how you can participate and support this event, please e-mail Kirsten Courtney at For more information on the Distress Centre of Niagara, please visit:

Distress Centre Niagara

Distress Centre Niagara officially began operating on October 3rd, 1970. The St. Catharines Jaycees conducted a survey among social service agencies to determine the need for a phone-in service. The response was overwhelming and a 24-hour telephone service commenced under the name Care-Line. On March 16th, 1984 the name was changed to Distress Centre of St.Catharines and District. The reason for this change was to maintain consistency with our provincial organization, Distress Centre Ontario.
