Teen Talk App

Teens can often feel overwhelmed by the complexities of their lives. They want support, but they don’t want it from adults. They crave it from other teens.

Teen Talk is a free mobile app that helps teens take control of their social and emotional health by providing an easy way for them to get help from the group of people they trust most: their peers.

Teens can use the app to safely and anonymously discuss their lives and concerns with teen advisors who have been professionally trained to help them with a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, relationships, family issues, school, and more.
