For Schools and Youth Organizations

Teen Line has the unique ability to connect with teenagers because teens form the core of our organization … they speak the same language. Our team has over 40 years of experience offering teenagers a “safe haven” – a place to talk things out with another teen in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment.

Learn more here how we can partner to bring our trainings and outreach presentations to your school or organization and additional resources to support your organization.

Youth Yellow Pages (YYP)

A resource guide for teens and schools with all the resources, information, and list of services you need.

How can our trainings help your school or organization?

  • To Raise Awareness. Mental health knowledge is associated with increased help seeking behavior in youth. 87% of youth who attended a Teen Line Outreach Program reported having a better understanding of teen issues.

  • To Destigmatize. Stigma surrounding mental health continues to be a major deterrent from seeking help for mental health conditions in youth. Contact with someone with mental illness is strongly associated with less stigmatizing attitudes. 

  • To Connect with Peers. 34% of 9th grade students in CA experienced chronic sadness or hopelessness in the last year. Only 52% of California High School students felt like a part of the school. Our outreach gets students to speak and relate to one another and foster connections.
