How do we encourage more boys to call Kids Helpline?
New research has found young males are seeking help from Kids Helpline, the 24-hour counselling service, in declining numbers and at a rate much less than girls.
The Kids Helpline Insights Report 2018 released today found only one in five males (21 per cent) contacted the helpline last year, in comparison to four out of five females ( 77 per cent).
So why are the boys struggling to make contact with the service?
The Wire asked Kids Helpline why less boys are calling and if there might be different ways for boys to interact with the service.
