Kidsline is New Zealand’s original telephone counselling service for all kids up to 18 years of age. Kidsline is uniquely about kids being there for other kids – we are the only national child helpline in the world where every counsellor is a secondary school student.
You can call us free anytime 24/7, but from 4-9pm Monday through 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!
Our service is FREE and SAFE to talk. At Kidsline we listen really carefully to what you’ve got to say. We’ll support and encourage you and help you come up with the best approach to what’s happening for you.
