BroTalk: A New Support Service for Teen Guys

brotalk-new-kids-help-phone-counselling-service

Kids Help Phone is pleased to announce the launch of BroTalk, a new service specifically designed to support mental and emotional health among teen guys.

BroTalk will help address the fact that teen guys are less likely to reach out for help and, when they do, they are less likely to discuss mental and emotional health or suicide and suicide-related issues than teen girls. Teenage guys also engage in high-risk behaviours and die by suicide more frequently than young women. Addressing the root cause of these issues among young men is a key focus for the new service.

BroTalk provides guys with tools and support they need to help them tackle their challenges and stresses, big or small. The service provides options for support including direct access to a Kids Help Phone counsellor through Live Chat, information and interactive tools.

Who’s behind the service?

BroTalk is a service of Kids Help Phone and is made possible initially thanks to generous funding from the Movember Foundation, the leading global men’s health charity.

BroTalk is also supported by Microsoft Canada, Cisco Systems Canada Co., Shaw Communications and The Co-operators Group Limited.
