Sometimes life can feel kind of hard and we need support from others. You could seek help from your parents but often young people find this idea scary. There are many different ways to acquire help from parents, some you may not have considered and might like to try. Other people may need to look outside of their families to find the support they need.

Join us to explore support people accessible in our lives, as well as consider diverse ways to express our feelings and seek support from those around us.
