The holiday period can be overwhelming for some and I thought it was timely to remind you how to access support at this time.
Kooth is proving very popular with young people and their free, safe and anonymous online support is available from Monday to Friday (12pm – 10pm) and Saturday and Sunday (6pm – 10pm).
There is also some very good guidance and strategies on the Anna Freud website regarding self-care which is well worth perusing over the break. In addition this link provides guidance on revision and how to cope with exam stress.
Clearly Childline is another great source of support, whatever the worry and contact can be made in many ways including by phone or email.
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT SOMEONE’S IMMEDIATE SAFETY
Make sure you are safe
Do not leave them on their own
Remove anything they could use to harm themselves
Get urgent medical help: call 999 or take them to A&E and if you can, stay with them until they are seen
Please do not forget to call 101 (non-emergency) or 999 (emergency) regarding criminal activity or 111 for medical concerns if your GP surgery is closed.
