Teen Line's mission is to provide peer based education and support to youth before problems become a crisis, using a national hotline, community outreach programs and digital spaces.
Teen Line is a peer-to-peer helpline for teenagers. Highly trained teenage volunteers answer phone calls, text messages, and emails every evening from 6:00pm to 10:00pm PST from youth nationwide who want to 'talk it out' with a peer. They won't judge you or give advice - their job is to listen to and validate your feelings and help come up with a plan together to address your concerns, whether that is trying new ways to cope with stress/anxiety or getting helpful resources. No problem is too small, too large, or too shocking for the TEEN LINE volunteers. Teens can call 800-852-8336 from 6pm to 10pm PST or text "TEEN" to 839863 from 6pm to 9pm PST.
