Ask a counsellor!
Have you ever thought about what it’s like to be one of Kids Help Phone’s professional counsellors?
Throughout July 2021, we’re giving you the exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes at Kids Help Phone! This is your chance to ask questions about what life is like for our counsellors.
Our counsellors hear from kids across the country at all hours of the day. You never know what someone might be going through and we’d like to give you some insight into what the last year has been like for youth. We’re giving supporters like you the chance to ask anything!
Submit your questions using the form below by July 12th. And then we’ll email you some responses to your questions!
