BrdsNBz Texting Helpline: Ready for the 2016-17 School Year!

Emoji Poster BrdsNBz Text Warm LineFor a lot of students, the return from summer vacation can mean a new summer romance, their first breakup or new questions about puberty, relationships and sex. And while a lot of students will take their first sex ed courses this semester, some questions may still linger. So this fall, teens can get advice where they live; on their phones with BrdsNBz!

BrdsNBz is a texting helpline made just for teens. The service can help teens figure out where to get birth control, how an STD test works or how to (finally) talk to their crush. BrdsNBz doesn’t give sex tips or diagnose diseases, but our counselors will often advise users to seek out a health care provider or trusted adult. And BrdsNBz is serious about confidentiality; all questions and answers are kept anonymous unless a counselor thinks someone could get hurt.

Text “NC Teen” to 66746 for confidential, accurate advice about relationships, sex and more.

A new school year means a new set of challenges. You’re studying new subjects, you’ll have harder homework, more responsibility and oh by the way, who’s the new hot kid in school?

Whether you need relationship advice, or are wondering what’s going on “down there”, we’re here to give you quick, confidential answers. We take privacy seriously; all questions and answers are kept anonymous unless one of our trained health counselors thinks someone is in danger.

BrdsNBz is a texting helpline, made just for teens. Text “NCTeen” to 66746 and our trained pros will reply within 24 hours (it’s often faster than that) to help you with whatever’s going on in your life. BrdsNBz can’t diagnose medical stuff like STDs, pregnancy or replace a good guidance counsellor. But it can definitely help you figure out where to get birth control, and how to talk about sex and give you some tips about how to be in a relationship. So if your crush asks you out (finally!) and you don’t know how to deal, text us!

A lot can change in a summer. BrdsNBz is here to help.
