Kids' Mental Health

In Support of Kids Help Phone

You can support kids' mental health in your community with every purchase from Calgary Crayons.

We donate $1 from each order to Kids Help Phone, a registered charity that provides free, 24/7 confidential professional counselling, information and volunteer support for young people across Canada.

You also have the option to donate to Kids Help Phone at checkout, either as a percentage of your order total or any custom amount you choose.

About Kids Help Phone

Created in 1989 to provide a way for young people to confidentially report abuse, a unique telephone counselling service was launched providing free, accessible support to any young person reaching out, anywhere in the country.

Almost immediately, young people let Kids Help Phone know that they needed more from the service than one focus, and one channel to reach them.

Over the past 30 years, Kids Help Phone has evolved its response and solutions, always focused on staying relevant to youth, recognizing the complexity of issues they face and ensuring counsellors are ready to address the continuum of emotional and mental health needs from crisis situations to the everyday concerns of growing up.

For 30 years, Kids Help Phone has shown up for youth in distress.
