Brotalk: A service for teen guys from Kids Help Phone

On Thursday, May 26, 2016, EENet and Kids Help Phone presented a webinar titled, "Brotalk: A service for teen guys from Kids Help Phone."

Brotalk is a new tailored service for male teens that provides counselling, information, resources, and interactive tools, with technologies and language that appeal to them.

This service was developed as a result of a series of focus groups that aimed to find out what are the positives and challenges that male teens associate with their life stage and what they feel are the essential elements of a service/support designed for them.
