There is no shame in asking for help if you’re worried about your mental health. Everyone needs help sometimes, especially when they’re going through a difficult time.
Sometimes difficult feelings can seem like too much to handle and it can be hard to imagine you’ll ever feel any better. But there are people who can help you. And if you’re worried about someone else’s mental health, you don’t have to support them on your own.
Some feelings can be too big to deal with on your own and it’s really important to speak to someone. This can feel difficult or scary at first, but it’s the first step towards making things better.
- If you think you might hurt yourself, or you’re considering ending your life, please speak to someone right away
- Call 999 or go to straight to a hospital
- You could speak to someone in your life who you trust, like a teacher or a family member
- Or you could contact a helpline or other organisation for support
It is important to remember that you’re not alone. You matter, and there are people who can help you get through these difficult feelings.
