Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone

Need help now? Text CONNECT to 686868

Kids Help Phone is always looking for innovative ways to connect young people with the support they need, in the way they need it most. That’s why we partnered up with Crisis Text Line to bring you a new way to reach out.

By texting CONNECT to 686868, you can chat confidentially with a trained, volunteer Crisis Responder for support with any issue — big or small. Our texting service is available 24/7/365. You don’t need a data plan, Internet connection or an app to use it. Remember, all conversations between young people and volunteer Crisis Responders are confidential.

We originally launched Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone in select provinces across Canada in early 2018. We’re proud to say our texting service has expanded nationally with the partnership of Canada Health Infoway. Learn more about the trial and our partnerships below!
