YouthLine, Teen Crisis Help Line
OregonYouthLine.org is a free teen-to-teen crisis support and helpline. YouthLine is confidential to a point - while they will never share conversations had on the lines, they are mandatory reporters. If a young person is unable to agree to safety for themselves or another person, or if abuse is occurring, YouthLine contacts other agencies to ensure the best support and safety for the young person in a crisis.
Teens are available to help daily from 4-10 p.m. PST (adults are available by phone at all other times!):
- Call: 877-968-8491
