Suicide is the leading cause of death among young people aged 12-25

"Without the Kids Helpline service my daughter wouldn't be alive today. This service has kept her alive and safe many times, they simply will never know what that means to my family."  (Sue, mother of a young person who accessed Kids Helpline)

A child or young person taking their own life is devastating for the families and friends directly affected, and for our wider community. Kids Helpline has ensured that for more than 25 years, children and young people always have someone to turn to, but we know there is more that needs to be done.

Despite responding to thousands of contacts each year related to suicidal thoughts, we know that there are potentially some who don’t get through to one of our counsellors. This Christmas we ask you to support Kids Helpline and the work being done to keep children and young people safe.


“Without Kids Helpline I wouldn’t be alive, its as simple as that. 

I first heard of Kids Helpline from school when I was about 13. I was feeling suicidal. I didn’t want to talk to my friends. I didn’t want to see my family. I didn’t want to exist. 

There are times I know I wouldn’t have made it through to the next morning if it wasn’t for Kids Helpline.”
