Cook youth helpline launched

2:34 pm on 31 May 2012

Help is at hand for struggling Cook Islands youth, with a free telephone youth helpline being launched today.

The helpline - 0800HELP - is run by Youthline New Zealand and is a free and confidential support network that troubled youth can ring for advice.

This is the first time that Youthline NZ services have been provided outside of New Zealand.
