Kids turn to us for serious issues

By: yourtown 21 Apr 2015 Kids Helpline

The Kids Helpline (KHL) Insights 2014, released yesterday, revealed one in four counselling contacts from children and young people were about mental health.


This report shows that significant numbers of young people are continuing to seek help from Kids Helpline for serious issues including mental health, suicide and self-harm. We believe this is because Kids Helpline is known and trusted by the young people who seek us out, supported by our increased presence in schools across the country.

We are committed to meeting the rising demand for both ongoing counselling support and the provision of relevant and up to date information for children and young people.

ABC News spoke to our CEO Tracy Adams about the new report. Watch this video to find out more.



If kids want to talk to someone, they can call Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or use email or web counselling services. No issue is too big or small.
