Worried about a friend’s mental health?

It is important that you encourage people to share their concerns with an adult in order for them to feel comfortable talking about their mental health.



YoungMinds provides young people with tools to look after their mental health. Here’s their advice on what you can say and how you can support your friend, while looking after your own mental health too.


Papyrus is the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. Their national helpline, HOPELineUK, including text and email services, is staffed by a team of mental health professionals who provide practical help and advice to vulnerable young people and to those concerned about any young person who may be at risk of suicide.
