Supporting newcomer youth
Kids Help Phone offers 24/7 e-mental health support to all young people across Canada, including newcomers. All of our services are free and private and we don’t require ID to use them.
Newcomers and other kids, teens and young adults across Canada can access inclusive support from Kids Help Phone’s counsellors (over the phone) and crisis responders (through text) 24/7 in English or French. (Our phone service is also offered in Ukrainian, Russian, Pashto, Dari, Mandarin and Arabic with the help of interpreters.) You can learn more about our services here.
