Need to talk? You can call Kids Help Phone

Sometimes talking about how you feel can be helpful, but a friend, parent, teacher or mentor isn’t available. Kids Help Phone is always there for you.

Kids Help Phone is a Canadian support service that’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for young people who need someone to talk to about just about anything that kids face. Here’s what the website has to say about what they do:

“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. Whether by phone, text, mobile app or through our website, you can connect with us whenever you want, however you want. Our service is completely confidential — you don’t even have to tell us your name if you don’t want to.”

Kids Help Phone was founded in 1989 (it’s a few months older than Taylor Swift) by a group of people who wanted to help young people. It’s a resource that’s accessible to you whenever you need it by calling 1-800-668-6868 or by going to their website at

Whether you’re sad, angry, scared, confused, or happy and have questions, Kids Help Phone can help.

Thank you for taking care of you!
