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.

To learn more, or speak with a volunteer, access Chatline here.

Like our phone lines, Chatline is closed for the summer. We will return just before the beginning of the school year. See our facebook page for the latest updates, and visit the resources section of our website for other online and phone services.
