At Teen Lifeline, teens help in ways only they can

A hotline staffed by teenagers for teenagers has been providing peer-to-peer support and counseling services in Arizona for years but has played an even bigger role during the coronavirus pandemic.

Not only have calls to the hotline increased, so has the number of those who want to volunteer.
