Kids Help Phone: Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7 e-mental health service offering free, confidential support in English and French to young people since 1989. It has expanded its services to enable newcomer youth from Afghanistan and Ukraine to get support from professional phone counsellors in Dari, Pashto, Russian, and Ukrainian, via specially trained interpreters. This service is available 24/7 from anywhere in Canada by calling 1-800-668-6868 to chat with a counsellor.
Young people can receive support from Kids Help Phone’s professional counsellors in Plains Cree and Ojibway with an over-the-phone interpreter present. This support is available Monday-Friday, between the hours of 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saskatchewan time, by dialing 1-800-668-6868 and pressing 3. Outside of these hours, professional phone counsellor support is available at any time in English and French.
