Where to get support

We all need support with our wellbeing or mental health from time to time. There are lots of places you can find support – make sure you ask for help when you need it.

Thinking about your own wellbeing and opening up about what’s affecting it can bring up big emotions. Sometimes your mind can get stuck thinking about what’s wrong, rather than what’s right, and it can be difficult to see how things can get better.

It’s important to recognise if you’re not feeling ok, and to reach out to someone who can listen and offer support.

You can reach out to:

Friend, Parent/Guardian or member of school staff

Your Doctor or GP
