Resources For Teens


Being a teen is hard!  And let’s face it, when you are in an emergency situation, dialing the phone and trying to find the right resources can be really tough.  Here at Smart Girl Society, we are working toward offering up-to-date resources and phone numbers for the largest areas that Girls (and Guys) are struggling with today including:

Bullying and Cyber Bullying, Sextortion and Traffiking, Depression, Suicide, Self-harm, Sexual and Domestic Violence, Mental Health, LGBTQ, Homelessness and Girl Specific Health questions.

  1.  Do you feel Safe?
  2. Are you in Physical Danger?
  3. Do you have thoughts or plans that could be dangerous to yourself or others?

If you answered “Yes” to any of the three above questions, ask for HELP immediately.  If you do not have a trusted adult available, and you feel like you are in immediate danger, Dial 911.

If you feel like you are not in immediate danger, please start with the following resources.  The first number listed (Boys Town National Hotline) is the most comprehensive resource offered.  Start there.
