Are you worried about a young person and not sure what to say? Do you worry that you might make things worse? You want to help them, but not sure how?
It all starts with a conversation.
Even if you aren't sure quite what to say, the important thing is that you say something. Let them know that you are concerned and why. They may be experiencing anxiety or depression, or they might be struggling with suicidal thoughts. By starting a conversation and showing your concern and willingness to support them, you’re giving them an opportunity to share what they are going through. This can make all the difference in ensuring they get any support they might need.
