If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone you know, it can be hard to know what to do to make the situation better. You don’t have to manage on your own.

You might not want to talk to anyone about your worries because you are embarrassed. You might think people won’t take you seriously or understand you, or that they might tell someone else when you don’t want them to. You might think adults have let you down, and therefore find it hard to trust them. It can be very difficult to talk about your feelings and what’s happening in your life, but some problems won’t go away if you try to sort them out yourself or ignore them.

Talking to someone can make you feel better and help you find a solution. Try talking to your friends or an adult that you can trust like a parent or teacher.

There are also lots of organisations that can provide support. Choose a button below to find more information.

Do you need immediate help or have a real emergency? If so, call 999. If it is not an emergency, you can contact the police on 101.
