What's worrying me?
Everyone has feelings that include feeling sad, confused, worried, nervous or angry, but if you feel any of these feelings a lot of the time and it means you can't do the things you enjoy, then it might be a good idea to ask someone for help.
Sometimes we can feel this way because of some of the following things -
Try to speak to your teachers, friends or family first, explain how you feel and that you need help.
If you don't know what to say or how to get help you may find it helpful to watch the 'talking mental health' animation. Some other children, just like you, created a youtube animation with the Anna Freud Centre, to watch it click on the picture below.
If you can't talk to your friends, family or teachers, or maybe you don't get on with them, you can call us instead on 0800 6444 101 and explain how you feel to us.
There are some things you can try to make yourself feel better -
Being outside, Board games
Listening to music,
Spend time with animals,
Spend time with friends,
Watch Youtube, TV or films.
