Teen Link is a confidential and anonymous help line for teens. Trained teen volunteers are available to talk with you about any issue of concern. No issue is too big or too small!
If you have a friend who tells you he or she is thinking of killing themself, take that person seriously and most importantly, be a good listener. Don’t keep a secret that may end a life. Tell a trusted adult if you believe a friend is considering suicide. By calling Teen Link, you will always reach someone who can help figure out how to get help for your friend.
“Teen Link is an open place where you learn about yourself while helping others. Everyone feels a little lonely at times; joining Teen Link is like [having] a non- judgmental friend always willing to listen.”
- Daniel, Teen Link Volunteer
