If you need support around your mental health there are local and national providers who can help.

It will explain the different services available and give you information on how to contact them. 

ADULTS / FRIENDS YOU KNOW AND TRUST

If you have an adult supporting you like a social worker or support worker it can be a good idea to speak to them in the first instance, they can give you help and advice and help you make contact with other people who may be able to help.

Speaking to our friends can also help, remember we should never feel concerned talking about our mental health. Everybody has mental health and everyone needs to talk to someone from time to time. 

NATIONAL
