Important Message from Teen Lifeline regarding COVID-19

In response to COVID-19 and statewide school closures, Teen Lifeline is now expanding our crisis texting service hours to Arizona youth through our free, confidential and anonymous hotline. We know that students being away from friends and trusted adults will mean that they need us now more than ever. Please encourage youth to call or text if they are struggling and need someone to talk to. Teen Lifeline is also available to parents and other adults who are in need of resources for their children. The following are our new hotline hours.

Teen Lifeline: call/text 602-248-8336

  • Calling remains available 24/7
  • Texting available extended hours 12pm-9pm on weekdays and 3pm-9pm on weekends.
  • Peer counselors are still available from 3pm to 9pm every day.
