For a while now there has been a legal requirement in the Netherlands for local councils to offer a "listening ear" for anyone, 24 hours a day. That service has een fulfilled by Sensoor, which uses upwards of 1000 volunteers. It's funding has now been secured via central government.

Many teenagers use the service to talk about depression, anxiety, self harm and loneliness, and other problems. It's available to users of all ages.
