Your impact: Our innovation

Since 1989, Kids Help Phone has shown up for youth by advocating for their mental health and pioneering new technology to offer them support. It’s because of your incredible support we’ve been able to stand as an ally and trusted service for all young people in Canada for over 30 years.

Innovation is the only way we can continue to save young lives. You help us adapt to the changing needs of young people and the accelerating pace of technological shifts.

Your support in action

Each day, over 1,000 young people reach out to Kids Help Phone for resources, professional counselling through phone or Live Chat and support via text from coast to coast to coast.

In 2018, your support fueled constant innovation and helped us:

  • extend Live Chat from five days a week to 24/7
  • launch a new, nationwide texting service for youth, available 24/7, in both English and French
  • create the first support service in Canada to answer texts by severity versus chronology, ensuring youth at-risk receive priority assistance
  • launch Good2Talk Nova Scotia for post-secondary students in the province

You are changing lives. See how you are showing up for youth in our 2018 Impact Report.

In today’s evolving digital world, we are there for all young people, any time they need help. Thank you for joining us and showing up for youth!
