Break The Silence On Mental Health
walk so kids can talk
Sunday, May 1, 2011
My best friend committed suicide. Every day after this happened up to today and every day after today I think about her. Sometimes I cry about it and sometimes I don’t. i don’t want to sound rude but I’m exhausted from feeling this way….. I just wish that it wouldn’t affect me so much.

Mental health struggles can affect any kid, anywhere, at any time. It can affect the kid in your life.
Offering safe, accessible, age-appropriate and immediate counselling to young people, Kids Help Phone’s professionalcounsellors play a vital role in reducing mental distress.

How we help
One of the most important assets Canada has in dealing with youth mental wellbeing is Kids Help Phone.
We are the only resource in Canada that is available for kids 24 hours a day, and the only organization that has access to a database of over 37,000 local resources. That means that no matter where a kid is calling from, our counsellors can connect them to a service right in their community, whether they need a place to stay for the night, a way-home or a sexual health clinic.
Kids can always get free, anonymous support by calling one of our professional counsellors at 1-800-668-6868 or by visiting www.kidshelpphone.ca.
Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and professionals working with youth can also visit www.kidshelpphone.ca for useful tips and relevant information on more than 50 issues that kids tell us are important to them.
