December 12, 2022 -- Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7 e-mental health service offering free, confidential support to young people in English and French.
Mental health tips and info - With Kids Help Phone’s web resources, young people can get information about how their thoughts, feelings and behaviours are connected and what they can do to care for their well-being.
Crisis support - If young people need help right now, they can text or Facebook message a trained, volunteer crisis responder at Kids Help Phone about anything they are going through. No issue is too big or too small.
Professional counselling - Young people can work with a professional counsellor at Kids Help Phone over the phone or through online chat to better understand what they are going through.
There is even more, including quizzes, games and activities; support forums and real-life stories; support service directory; and much more: https://kidshelpphone.ca/
