Since 1989, Kids Help Phone has provided life changing — sometimes even lifesaving — help and hope to young people in Québec. Kids Help Phone opened its Québec regional office in 1994 and its Montréal counselling centre in 1997.
Today, as a community-based charity with a strong local presence, Kids Help Phone has a team of dedicated staff, volunteers, donors, and partners in Québec who work tirelessly to support kids in the province as they develop resilience and reach their potential — creating stronger, healthier communities for everyone. Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7 professional counselling and information service supporting young people’s mental health and well-being.
