About Brighter Days
You’ll have a culturally safe, fun session with a Kids Help Phone Indigenous Wellness Specialist and other Indigenous youth (up to 25 youth per session). The Wellness Specialist will explain the different services Kids Help Phone offers, and what you can do to get support in a way that works best for you. The session will start with a video introduction featuring former NHL player Jordin Tootoo.
To register, you can pick your age group from the options below. You can use the link in that dropdown to select a date and time for your session. The session participants will be other Indigenous young people, and there may be up to 25 participants in the session. Using the links below, you can register one to four Indigenous youth, and we ask that you register one person at a time. (If you’d like to register five or more Indigenous young people, we invite you to use our group registration page.)
You can email us at Indigenous@kidshelpphone.ca if you have questions about the program that aren’t answered in the FAQ below.
Please note that although the Indigenous Wellness Specialist who leads the session is a mental health professional, the program is not a counselling session. If you’re looking for support, you can reach out to Kids Help Phone 24/7.
