Help for teens worried about COVID-19

Help for teens is not far away. Kids Help Phone (Jeunesse, J'écoute) is an organization offering trustworthy information and mental health support.
Specializing in youth issues, Canada's only 24/7 national support service is completely confidential. They don't even want to know your name unless you want to give it.
Chat, phone, or text with real people who are there with no judgment – and, certainly, no cost .
