Kids Help Phone launches texting service in Manitoba
Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone now available in Manitoba 24/7!
Kids Help Phone is always looking for new ways to connect you with the support you need, when you need it most. That’s why we’ve partnered up with Crisis Text Line to bring you a new, easy way to access help directly from your cellphone, without the need for a data plan, internet connection or app!
For Manitoba youth
If you’re in Manitoba, you can text CONNECT to 686868 and you’ll be connected to a trained Crisis Responder to help you with any issues – big or small. The service is free, confidential, and available 24/7/365.
If you don’t live in Manitoba, you can still reach Kids Help Phone 24/7 by phone on 1-800-668-6868 and online during Live Chat hours. We’ll be launching the texting service across the country later this year. Stay tuned!
