And the sad part is, that no matter how hard we try, there will never be a day when young people are stress and depression free. However, since 1989 there has been an organization in Canada that has been dedicated to assisting those who need it.
Kids Help Phone launched in 1989 and have been a great resource. In 2010 Kids Help Phone estimates that 225,622 counseling contacts were made. That equals more than 4,300 phone and online contacts per week.
All across Canada, Kids Help Phone is available to young people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Their professional counsellors are always ready to help. Always.
If you know anyone 20 years old and younger who may need someone to talk to please make sure they know the 1-800-668-6868 phone number for Kids Help Phone.
