Teen Link is a confidential and anonymous help line for teens. Each evening from 6-10 PM trained teen volunteers are available to talk with you about any issue of concern. No issue is too big or too small!
During the hours when the Teen Link help line is not answered by teens, the calls are answered by volunteers and staff on our WA Recovery Help Line. You also have the option of leaving a message and having a Teen Link volunteer return your call, or you can email us at: [email protected]
Teen Link Chat
Chat online with a Teen Link volunteer on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Simply go to Teen Link’s website (866TeenLink.org) and click on the chat icon found at the bottom of the home page.
Where to Turn for Teens
If you have a friend who tells you he or she is thinking of killing him/herself, take that person seriously and most importantly, be a good listener. Don’t keep a secret that may end a life. Tell a trusted adult if you believe a friend is considering suicide. By calling Teen Link, you will always reach someone who can help figure out how to get help for your friend.
Youth Suicide Prevention Training
Teen Link also provides youth suicide prevention training in middle schools, high schools and to youth serving organizations in King County. Each year teen volunteers and staff train more than 6,000 youth to recognize the signs of suicide and how to get help! Call or email us to arrange for training.
