“A young, impulsive guy who made the effort to pick up the phone before going ahead with committing suicide: It feels so good to let this out!  I felt really useful! I think, actually, that it was my first call at Tel-jeunes regarding suicidal thoughts, and that was years ago!”

- Kathia for Tel-jeunes

“The mother of two young kids thanked me profusely at the end of our call regarding a few crises and sleeping issues. Since her children were born, I was the first person who’d taken the time to listen to her, and to understand her values and expectations instead of dictating what to do.”

“A 17-year-old homosexual boy, living alone in an apartment and rejected by his family, called during the holiday season because he was feeling very alone. At the end of our chat, he said: ‘I’m lucky you’re there. Thanks for listening and responding. I didn’t feel like I was being judged and I felt like you really understood me too.”
