YourLifeYourVoice.org is part of The Boys Town National Hotline. Counselors are available 24/7 and have a wide range of experiences working with kids and families who are frustrated, depressed, or just need someone to talk to.
If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or you are being abused, please call us. These are serious issues that are best handled in one-on-one conversations with counselors.
