You Matter is a safe space for youth to discuss and share stories about mental health and wellness, created and administered by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You Matter blog posts are written by a rotating Blogger Council of individuals between the ages of 13-24 that are passionate about suicide prevention and mental health. You Matter is a movement to spread the word that your problems, your worries, your fears, and above all you—unique and real you—matter. And because just about everyone—at some point—hits the wall, we’re here to help. If you need support, call 1-800-273-8255 or chat with the Lifeline.

Whether that’s bullying, mental health, relationships, identity or the tough stuff in-between, we’re here. We provide digital safe spaces, direct support, education, campaigns and world-class research. Speak to a Mentor. Free Tool Kits. Removal of Online Abuse. Self Help Resources.
Teens reach out for support on a variety of topics and are able to talk with a trained peer crisis intervention specialist who can listen, relate, and empathize while discussing healthy coping skills and encouraging help seeking behavior. The phone lines are open 24 hours a day. The helpline is answered by youth daily from 4-10pm. Outside of these hours, the phone lines are answered by adult volunteers from Lines for Life who also answer the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Alanon Family Groups
Al-Anon members are people, just like you, who are worried about someone with a drinking problem. Family members have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems. Teens come together to share experiences to find effective ways to cope with problems.
Alateen Mobile App
Alateen meetings in the Mobile App are for young people aged 13 to 18 who have been affected by someone else’s drinking. We are invited to share experience, strength, and hope with other teens. Alateen meetings in the Mobile App are moderated. The meetings are available only to Alateens and take place when the assigned adult Alateen Group Sponsors are present.. At this time, Electronic Alateen meetings can only be accessed in the Al‑Anon Family Groups Mobile App.
