“Talking to KYDS about my fears during COVID-19 lock down
really helped me get through a tough time.”
“Keeping everything to myself was just so hard and exhausting.
Contacting KYDS was a really big turning point.”
“I had no idea what to do, or where to turn. Then a friend mentioned
KYDS and I’m so glad they did. Their support changed everything.”
“If you want to speak with someone who listens, rather than
judges, speak with KYDS. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner.”

What comes to mind when you hear the word “motivation”? Do you think of a diligent high-performer with a burning focus on the HSC? Someone sitting and waiting, hoping for a burst of inspiration before finally getting started on that history paper? Maybe an ice hockey coach pumping up a team with a half-time pep-talk?
Any issue. Any time. If you’re ready to talk about it, we’re ready to help.
