We Naseeha Youth Helpline (“Naseeha”) is a registered charitable organization.  We provide confidential helpline for young Muslims to receive immediate, anonymous, and confidential support over the phone and over text from 12 – 12 pm, 7 days a week (Eastern Standard Time).

Our mission is to establish a helpline that incorporates Islamic and prophetic-centered understandings and teachings.
