Welcome to Chatline, the online counterpart to McGill Students' Nightline! We're here Thursday - Saturday from 6 PM to 3 AM for anything you'd like to chat about. If you would like to talk to a volunteer, enter our chat room and you will be connected as soon as someone becomes available.
If at any time you would prefer to speak to a volunteer over the phone or if our chat rooms are busy, feel free to call McGill Student’s Nightline at 514-398-6246 between the hours of 6PM and 3AM, any night of the week.
All our conversations are kept confidential, and chats are never saved.
Chatline is a student-run, online extension of McGill Students’ Nightline.
We are a confidential, anonymous and non-judgmental messaging service, that provides support to the McGill and greater Montréal community. Our volunteers are not professionals; we are a peer-support service. Our volunteers are trained in active listening, crisis management, and can provide information and referrals. Everyone is welcome to use Nightline.

Passionate about providing a listening ear to others
