Don’t forget

Don’t try to cope on your own

Talking to someone is the best thing you can do when you feel sad

I am feeling very sad can you help me please

And remember:

There are people available that understand how you feel and are ready to help you. The details can be found by clicking here (link to ‘Speak to Someone’ page).

What you can do to help yourself

  • Make a list of 3 people or organisations you can talk to about how you feel.
  • Make a list of 3 or more things that are important to you, so when you are feeling sad you can remind yourself of your “reasons for living”
  • Tell someone how you feel or show them the picture. It helps to talk.
