Chat Now

Teen Link accepts chats every night of the week from 6:00-9:30 p.m.

If the icon below says we are available to chat, click on the link and follow the instructions. It will take you to a secure third-party site and ask you a few questions before you can log in. You may give us as much or as little information as you like or you may choose to chat anonymously.

On rare occasions, chat may be unavailable.  If you are in a crisis, consider calling the Teen Link help line at 1-866-TEENLINK (833-6546) or 9-1-1 instead.

Some ground rules for Teen Link Chat:

  • Teen Link Chat does not work well on smart phones, so try to use a computer.
  • Stay focused on the chat and try to limit multi-tasking (like chatting with friends, going on Facebook, doing homework, etc.).
  • If you need to step away from the computer, please let us know and consider ending the chat and coming back later.

Teen Link Chat is a safe, anonymous, nonjudgmental, and confidential peer-to-peer support system for youth. It is handled in the exact same way as our phone line, but is text-based and online. We handle all chats with the same protocols and policies as our phone line, and it is just as confidential and anonymous as the help line. Above are the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for your information.
