“I don’t know what’s wrong, but I need to talk”
Sometimes we feel sad and we don’t know why.
Sometimes we worry a lot and we don’t know why.
Sometimes we feel certain ways for no reason we can think of, but it’s important to know that this is normal and everybody at some point in their lives feels this way.
Most of us feel overwhelmed or unsure of how we feel at least once in our lives. It’s also normal to feel more than one emotion at a time, such as you could be sad and angry, or anxious and depressed, or maybe all of them. Growing up causes lots of new stresses and worries – for example exam stress, falling out with friends or family, changes to our bodies – but you are not alone. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
“I’m worried about them, what do I do?”
Are you a student who is worried about one of your friends?
Are you a parent who is worried about your son or daughter?
It can be hard to know what to do, or how to help the person you care about if you think they are struggling. There are people in and out of school who you can speak to who can help support you.
