Worried about a friend?

It can be really difficult to know what the right thing to do or say is. Sometimes your friend may already be accessing mental health support, but other times they may be trying hard to manage on their own.

One in four people experience some form of mental ill health, so that means in most of our friendship groups at some stage we or our friends may need some support.  Often it is not so much what we do that helps, the main thing is to be a non-judgemental friend and to understand that your friend may be finding life quite tough.

Sometimes something simple like a friendly text message or asking him/her to go for a coffee can make a real difference. 

Encourage your friend to talk to someone and if you are really worried, you can email our wellbeing mailbox wellbeing@christs.school. All emails are treated with the strictest confidence.

Also, remember that it is really important to look after yourself.
