PANS made a $5,000 donation to Kids Help Phone Kids talk to Kids Help Phone when kids don't know who to talk to. There for kids, day and night To reach a Kids Help Phone professional counsellor, kids, teens and young adults from any community in Canada can call or go online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Anything goes From trouble with homework to dealing with loss and grief to thoughts of suicide, kids can talk to Kids Help Phone about anything. Professional counsellors provide anonymous, confidential and nonjudgemental support. Support right at home Kids Help Phone is the only organization that has access to a database of over 37,000 local resources. That means that no matter where a kid is calling from, our professional counsellors can connect them to a service right in their community, whether they need a place to stay for the night, a way-home or a sexual health clinic. Kids Help Phone's Mission Their mission is to improve the well-being of children and youth in Canada by providing them anonymous and confidential professional counselling, referrals and information inEnglishandFrench, through technologicallybased communications media. Even though everyone needs help sometimes, stigma around mental and emotional health struggle remains strong. The threat of being judged or labeled can leave both adults and kids reluctant to seek help. PANS in the community
