Every two minutes a child or young person reaches out to Kids Helpline. We answer more than 5,500 cries for help every week from young Australians.
On a recent Friday night we received 65 calls in the space of three hours. Some of the issues our counsellors were presented with that night included:
19 year old contemplating suicide
16 year old male who had been sexually abused
12 year old girl dealing with family separation
14 year old male being bullied at school
18 year old girl with serious substance abuse issues
We are here for all young people. There is no issue is too big or small.
We have more than 130 professionally qualified counsellors who respond to almost 270,000 contacts made by young people every year. Sadly, there are still thousands of calls that go unanswered.
We’re asking you to fundraise for Kids Helpline and help us answer the thousands of calls going unanswered so we can be there when children and young people reach out for help.
Kids Helpline is Australia’s only 24/7, free, private and confidential counselling service specifically for children and young people aged 5-25 years. For more information, visit http://www.kidshelp.com.au/.
