Supporting young people in New Brunswick
Kids Help Phone is proud to offer our phone, text and Live Chat services 24/7 in both English in French for all young people across the bilingual province of New Brunswick. And in 2018, we provided support to young people in New Brunswick over 12,500 times.
Young people from New Brunswick using our counselling service identified as living in or being from a rural area three times more than any other province or territory.
In 2018, the top issues we heard about from young people in New Brunswick include:
- mental/emotional health
- peer and partner relationships
- family changes and relationships
- sexual orientation and gender identity
In 2018, there was a 45% increase in counselling sessions that discussed suicide or suicide-related issues. Texting conversations about body image issues were discussed more with youth in New Brunswick than any other province or territory.
We’re so grateful to our supporters across New Brunswick for helping to ensure every young person has a place to turn in any moment of crisis or need.
