Teen Line, which works to help prevent crises by providing a safe space to talk about difficult issues through peer-to-peer support and education through highly trained teen volunteers responding via phone calls, hosted a Virtual Celebration on August 29.
Pictured here, Executive Director Michelle Carlson (top) shared remarks describing the importance of the peer-to-peer support for youth mental health provided during the pandemic. The second photo shows host Erin Ward chatting with “Saturday Night Live” alums and actors David Spade and Molly Shannon.
Teen Line is gearing up for a “teen-led” Call-A-Thon on Saturday, September 12, where volunteers will work a full 12-hour period to respond to calls from struggling teens across the country and beyond. Though Teen Line is open seven nights per week, this is the only time each year that the program is open for a 12-hour period.
