Long-term Desired Outcome
Kids Help Phone’s goal is to be the most nimble, accessible, effective access point for young people to the support they need.
We must initiate, and participate in, national and international conversations representing the direct needs of young people, attract funders on the basis of our track record and vision, and ensure that wheels are not reinvented to address issues on which we have unique and compelling contributions to make. To achieve this, we are turning our data and our experience with young people into resources that policymakers and academics can use to make their efforts more effective.
We are developing a dedicated research program to generate and share new knowledge based on our service data and insights. We are seeking to partner with governments, nonprofits, and corporations to establish new services that support the mental health and the well-being of youth. And finally, we are seeking to increase the understanding of the unique role we play – because the more effective we can be at what we do best, the less that society will have to rely on high-cost, last-resort services at moments of individual crisis.
