0800 WHAT's UP is a nationwide, confidential counselling helpline for children and young people. Our counsellors are available 365 days a year and it’s free to call, including from a mobile phone. Children and young people can also get tips on dealing with the most commonly called about issues through the 'most talked about' sections of the kids and teens sections of our website.
You can call about whatever’s on your mind – no problem is too big or too small – and if you just want to have a chat and a laugh, we’re here to listen. If it’s someone else's problem, that’s cool – we can talk about that too. Whatever you want to say, you don’t need to worrry about being judged or getting into trouble.
0800 WHAT'S UP is also here to talk about any concerns around sexual harm. No problem is too big or too small.
