Do you have someone to talk to?

When things happen in life that might feel difficult, it’s important to have someone to talk to. Someone who can listen, maybe comfort, and help out.

Here, we have gathered organizations that work with and for children if you want to talk to someone outside. Sometimes it feels easier, and then you should do it.

Children need to talk about what they’re going through

If your parents are preoccupied with themselves, maybe it’s easier to talk to your grandpa or grandma, a friend’s parent, or a teacher at school. Preferably someone who understands what you’re going through, who can listen and give hope that things will get better. Sometimes it can also be nice to be more anonymous or just to read or hear about how others have moved forward and felt better again.

Here, we have gathered safe places where children can turn to for support and help!
