Why Tel-jeunes is useful

Quebec adolescents can at any time:

  • Reach a dedicated and experienced professional
  • Be listened to and heard about the challenges they are facing

35 years of service facing life’s challenges.

This one-time, punctual and free hotline is offered by professional counselors to all parents of children ages 0–20. Since 1981, back when the LigneParents was called “Parents anonymes,” more than 500,000 have received help from this service.
