Kids Help Phone Launches New Service

As a generous supporter of Kids Help Phone, we wanted you to be among the first to know about the launch of our new service that speaks directly to teen guys: BroTalk.

Why guys?

  • Only 23% of young people who reach out to a counsellor at Kids Help Phone are male.
  • Suicide accounts for about 23% of deaths among youth aged 15 to 24. Over 75% of these youth are male.

Kids Help Phone conducted 18 months of extensive research with guys to better understand and meet their needs. We used what we learned to develop BroTalk – a new service that speaks directly to teen guys. This site acts as a gateway into Kids Help Phone’s professional counselling service.

Visit the BroTalk website now!

How you can help

Stigma is part of the reason males don’t reach out for support. Start the conversation.

  2. Share this message on social media. "What’s new at @KidsHelpPhone? #BroTalk—a new support service for teen guys. Check out BroTalk.ca"

 

 

Kids Help Phone is proud to recognize the Movember Foundation as the Principal Funder of this new service.
