Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7, national support service. We offer professional counselling, information and referrals and volunteer-led, text-based support to young people in both English and French.
Created in 1989 to provide a way for young people to confidentially report abuse, a unique telephone counselling service was launched providing free, accessible support to any young person reaching out, anywhere in the country.
Over the past 30 years, we have evolved our response and solutions, always focused on staying relevant to youth, recognizing the complexity of issues they face and ensuring counselors are ready to address the continuum of emotional and mental health needs from crisis situations to the everyday concerns of growing up.
