What is Chatline?

Chatline is a student-run online extension of McGill Students’ Nightline. It is a confidential, anonymous, and non-judgmental instant messaging service. Chatters will be connected to one of our volunteers through an anonymous platform. Our volunteers are trained in active listening and crisis management, and can provide information, referrals, and more. Everyone is welcome to use Chatline.

McGill Students’ Nightline & Chatline will be closed during the summer and will re-open in late August towards the beginning of the academic year. Please keep an eye on this website and our social media for updates. As always, we welcome your feedback via our anonymous form.
