Teen Link is a confidential, anonymous and non-judgmental telephone help line answered by teens each evening from 6 p.m. -10 p.m. Teen volunteers are trained to listen to your concerns and to talk with you about whatever is on your mind. No issue is too big or too small. Phone workers also have access to an extensive database and can give you information on agencies serving youth in the King County area. Teen Link Where to Turn Booklet:



Much like the line, teens can use Teen Link Chat to seek support for our teen volunteers on a variety of issues, including bullying, drug and alcohol concerns, relationships, stress, and other teen issues. Teen Link accepts chats from 6-9:30PM every day of the week. Teen Link Chat does not work well on cell phones, so they ask that you log on with a computer to chat with them.

“Trans Lifeline is a grassroots hotline and microgrants organization offering direct emotional and financial support to trans people in crisis - for the trans community, by the trans community.

Trans Lifeline was founded in 2014 as a peer-support crisis hotline. The Hotline was, and still is, the only service in the country in which all operators are transgender. Because of the particularly vulnerable relationship transgender people have with police, it is also the only service in the country with a policy against non-consensual active rescue.
