Your impact on young people in 2019
This year, Kids Help Phone marked 30 years of showing up for young people. You made it all possible. You’re saving lives each and every day.
- You gave over 2M young people a safe and trusted place to turn — you saved more lives and gave more young people access to critical mental health supports than ever before!
- You helped young people reach out through Live Chat — we celebrated 1-year of Live Chat being 24/7, giving youth a trusted place to turn whenever they need it.
- You helped train more than 1,500 volunteer Crisis Responders in just one year since the launch of Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone. Thanks to you, over 140,000 texting conversations have taken place, which are conversations that would not have happened before!
Thank you for showing up for youth!
