How To Get Help

TALK TO SOMEONE

The most important thing you can do if you think you are suffering from emotional health issues is talk to someone. This could be your parents, a sibling, friend, teacher, GP but often talking about how you are feeling can really help you to feel better. People who care about you will want to help you to feel better so don’t feel worried about talking to people.

If it is something specific that is causing the problem, for example if you are worried about exams, then talking to a teacher may help to reassure you or they may be able to offer practical help such as extra reading to help you feel better about things.

At Christ's you can talk to a member of the Pastoral Support Team, the School Chaplain, or your Key Stage Leader or, if you'd prefer, you can talk to a teacher that you trust or your Key Stage Leader. Alternatively you can email our wellbeing mailbox wellbeing@christs.school. All emails are treated with the strictest confidence.

There are also posters outside each of the toilets in the main school building giving contact details for a range of agencies that might be able to help.

VISIT YOUR GP

If you don’t feel comfortable talking to a friend, teacher or your parents, go and see your GP – they are there to help you to feel better whether it is a physical health problem or a mental health problem and there are a number of things that they may suggest for you. Don’t suffer in silence, keeping it all to yourself will only worsen your feelings of anxiety or depression and remember, you’re not the only one to feel like this, other young people – and adults too – experience mental health problems too.
