What do you do?

 

Ask yourself,

  • Who do you care for?
  • What things do you do to help?
  • Does anyone help you?
  • What is your day like?

What you can do!

  • Tell someone you trust, it could be a friend, a relative or a teacher.
  • Ask for help from family members or people close to you.
  • Take a look at our support section to find others who can help.

You're not alone!
