The LGBT youthline is an Ontario-wide helpline that provides confidential and non-judgemental peer support to youth under 29 that identify as 2SLGBTQ+ . The helpline has been providing service to the community for over 25 years. Up until recently they offered this service through phone, text and chat but due to staff capacity and an increased demand for text and chat support, they will be halting their phone service indefinitely and will be focusing on the text and chat services.
Their hours for the text support are 4pm – 9:30pm at 647-694-4275.
Their hours for the chat support are also 4pm – 9:30pm, and you can access the chat service via their website youthline.ca.
The organization is also doing a call out for peer support volunteers for their text and chat services! If you are interested you can find more information on the LGBT youthline website.
