Helping Someone Else

1 in 10 young people will go through periods of feeling emotionally unwell during any given year, but what do you do when this is your friend or relative?

We understand it can be hard to know what to do when someone you care about is going through a rough patch, so we have put together some tips and advice, with the help of young people from mental health support group Hearts & Minds.

The document below includes some information on how to talk to someone you’re worried about, how to look after yourself during this time and how to seek help from an adult if you become seriously worried. In each section, you can read quotations that come directly from young people who have experience coping with similar situations
