In addition to our telephone helpline, Teen Link offers Teen Link Chat, available through our website at 866TEENLINK.org. Teens can use Teen Link Chat to seek support from 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 6-9:00 pm every day of the week. Teen Link Chat does not work well on cell phones, so we ask that you log on with a computer to chat with us.
