It can be really hard when you don't tell anyone you're feeling sad, lost, lonely or angry. Then it's just you and those bad feelings.

If you want to talk about how you're feeling, or what's going on in your life call Kidsline! We're here especially for YOU.  We won't tell you what to do, we'll just listen, and help you explore and figure out your options, or help you see things in a different way.

You can call us nationwide and free anytime 24/7, but between 4 and 9pm Monday - Friday your call will be answered by a Kidsline Buddy.  We're specially-trained year 12 and 13 students, so we know what it's like - cause we are kids too! If you need to talk it through, call Kidsline on 0800 54 37 54.


12:00 AM to 12:00 AM.

Mon – Sun midnight – midnight
