Kids Help Phone

Grown-up problems aren’t just for Grown-ups

Agency: McCann Worldgroup


Adults are taken more seriously than kids, and so are their problems. But here’s the thing: kids have adult-sized problems. Anxiety, depression, grief – their problems are big and need to be heard. That’s why Kids Help Phone is giving them an adult voice to make sure they're taken seriously too.
In their first campaign for Kids Help Phone as agency of record, McCann Canada created a series of films featuring esteemed Canadian actors performing monologues about anxiety, grief, coming out and other real obstacles, only to find out that these conversations were actually from kids who have reached out to Kids Help Phone in times of need.

This professional campaign titled 'Grown-up problems aren’t just for Grown-ups' was published in Canada in December, 2021. It was created for the brand: Kids Help Phone, by ad agency: McCann Worldgroup. This Film medium campaign is related to the Health and Other industries and contains 4 media assets. It was submitted about 2 years ago by Communications Manager: Shana Blackman of McCann Worldgroup.
