Get the support you need when you need it most
Throughout the last year, COVID-19 has taken a toll on the mental health of many kids, teens and young adults across Canada. In 2020, young people reached out to Kids Help Phone over four million times — for counselling, crisis support and self-guided tips and tools. If it’s been a difficult time for you, we want you to know you’re not alone.
Whether you’re looking to take proactive steps to maintain your well-being or are struggling to support yourself and the people you care about, it’s helpful to know what’s available to you. Here, Kids Help Phone shares tools and resources you can use to cope if and when you need it. These resources are informed by what young people share with us every day.
