“I've never really spoken to somebody about my issues with such ease. I was scared coming into the situation because I had never contacted a help line before. But I'm glad I got to speak with you. You really helped me feel heard. Thank you.” — person contacting Kids Help Phone

On Sunday, May 7, 2023, you can join Kids Help Phone at BMO Walk so Kids Can Talk in support of youth mental health and well-being across Canada!

On average, Kids Help Phone supports young people more than 10,000 times every day. Our free, confidential, e-mental health service is always open, offering youth across Canada a non-judgmental space to feel out loud and get support in English and French through phone, text and online resources.

Kids Help Phone has an ambition to transform access to more equitable resources through the power of technology, data and innovation. With our Canada-wide community of supporters, we’re talking about radical landscape change to Canada’s mental health ecosystem.

To help give young people’s feelings a place to go: Register. Fundraise. Donate.
