Feeling angry? Alone?

Sometimes life can feel too much

Children & young people

Helping 5 to 17 year olds face the challenges of growing up

We know life is full of challenges, and that sometimes things can just feel like too much. You might find yourself feeling angry all the time, or tearful and upset at the slightest thing, or pull away from everyone and feel very alone, as if everything is hopeless. You might not feel like eating, or find yourself eating all the time. Your sleep may be broken by nightmares and you could feel bad about yourself and maybe even want to hurt yourself.

 

These are strong feelings - we can help.                                                                                                                                                                                           

When this happens it can help to talk to someone outside friends, school and family. We offer a safe place to talk and help you to understand what's happening to you and get you back on track. You can tell your story in a variety of ways – you can talk or, for example, you may prefer to draw or paint or even jump on cardboard boxes! It’s ok to be quiet too if sometimes you don’t feel like talking.
