TEENTXT is a Text Support Line for young people in the Kerry area.
If teenagers have problems relating to issues such as bullying, relationships, exam pressure, alcohol/drug use, any form of abuse, depression or simply no one to talk to, they can access the service for support by texting the word “TEEN” to 50101 and they will get a personal response. The service is totally confidential and the teenager’s number will not appear on any screen. The teenager will remain in control at all times.
