Help spread the word about Canada’s first free, 24/7 texting service for young people!

Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone launched nationally in 2018. By texting CONNECT to 686868, youth across Canada are able to connect with a trained, volunteer Crisis Responder. Young people don’t need a data plan, Internet connection or app to access the service. All conversations between young people and volunteers are confidential.

We’re calling on our supporters to help us spread the word about this service! Below you’ll find information and resources on sharing the message to your networks.
