TeenLine and TeenLink help others through communication. To ensure everyone benefits from these services, we ask that you follow these guidelines:
TeenLink is open to any youth or parent that needs help, no matter what race, religion, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or point of view. TeenLink encourages diversity and will not tolerate chat about bigotry, hatred and harassment, or threats towards anyone.
We give you control over your personal information---although we ask for some information, it is used for statistical purposes only and your privacy is guaranteed.
TeenLink connects you with other teens so you can talk things out during difficult times, get peer counseling, and access community resources. The internet, like any community, is not always secure. You have the right to protect yourself from harmful people or material.
