A safe space for kids to talk and be heard
“Like any parent, I hope my kids come to me whenever they need help. So when my daughter shared recently that she’d turned to Kids Help Phone years ago, I wondered why she had reached out for help somewhere else. But almost immediately, another feeling took over: gratitude. As parents, it’s so reassuring to know our kids have someone to talk to when they don’t feel like they can come to us. That’s why I’m thrilled to give to Kids Help Phone. Because you never know when a young person you love will need it.”
– Dunia, supporter and mother of a Kids Help Phone user
It’s not always obvious when a young person is struggling. But every kid in every province and territory deserves help when they need it.
Whether by phone, text, mobile app or through our website, Kids Help Phone is always open for young people in any moment of crisis or need. We offer free, confidential professional counselling, information, referrals and volunteer-led, text-based support to young people in both English and French. And in 2019 alone, over 2 million young people accessed this critical lifeline of hope and support.
