Who we are

We are a Crisis Prevention Centre that supports all individuals when experiencing stress, emotional distress, loneliness, and suicidal thoughts. 

Founded in 1986, Some Other Solutions was established to address the problems relating to crisis or giving rise to crisis.  In the late 1980’s, the Crisis Line, Growing with Grief program and Teen Line were some of our initial programs and services offered to Fort McMurray and surrounding area.  

In 1990, the Crisis Line was able to extend its service to many remote areas throughout Northeastern Alberta with the addition of the 1-800 line.  With the help of many community organizations and government support, we have continued to grow our programs, services and reach.

Over 30 years later, we have expanded to offer a variety of services and programs for individuals, families and community based programs.  We have partnered with organizations, schools, and host events to raise awareness and provide the tools and resources to empower individuals to meet life’s challenges and build their capacity to support others.
