NZ has the worst youth suicide rate in the developed world

Currently, 1 in 4 texts to Youthline deal with depression, self-harm and suicide. 1 in 10 texts relate specifically to suicide. 

Last year Youthline worked with over 50, 000 individual young people and managed over 300, 000 contacts to our Hub. Of those, 11, 527 dealt with suicide and self-harm. 

Tragically, 30-40% of young people who try to connect for the first time do not get service. You can help us change that.  

Help us be there for young people when they need us most. We are here to listen, a critical part of breaking the silence. 

An average connection can last from 15-60 minutes. $1 for 1 minute.
