Prince Edward Island
Supporting young people in Prince Edward Island
Across the red sands of Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.), Kids Help Phone is proud to offer all young people support through phone, text and Live Chat.
We’re also so thankful to our mighty supporters on the Island for their continued generosity in bringing more and more awareness to our life-saving services. Kids Help Phone provided support to young people in P.E.I. over 3,000 times in 2018.
In 2018, the top issues we heard about from young people in P.E.I. include:
- mental/emotional health
- peer and partner relationships
- family changes and relationships
- physical violence and abuse
In the last five years, counselling sessions with discussions of suicide and suicide-related issues increased by 236% across the Island. And conversations about substance use were discussed more with young people in Prince Edward Island than any other province or territory.
