All Charities Community Support Health The simplest way to give - 65 charities to choose from
Youthline has been supporting the community for more than 50 years. Youthline is New Zealand's leading youth mental health and development organisation.
Research conducted by Colmar Brunton shows Youthline is by far the most recognised youth support organisation in New Zealand.
Youthline is also the youth support organisation most strongly associated with the characteristics that are most important for young people. 1 in 5 young Kiwis have used Youthline's services at some stage.
Every year, thousands of young New Zealanders will reach out to Youthline for support during the good times and the bad. Whether a young person needs support with something they are struggling with, or they want to learn more about themselves and give back to their community - Youthline can help.
Of the hundreds of texts Youthline receives each day, 1 in 5 is related to suicide. 2 in 5 related to anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicide.
Our Helpline is not a fully funded service and we must raise $1.3 million each year to continue to provide our free 24/7 Helpline service. $15 can provide a young person with 6 minutes of phone support. $30 can help respond to 6 text messages through the Helpline. $60 can provide a young person with 24 minutes of phone support.
