Are you struggling? Don’t know who to turn to? It can be tough and quite worrying when your struggling and you feel like no one is there for you. There is always someone there for you and who will listen. I will be writing a few points and tips today!
Many people are there but we struggle to think of who to turn to. Some ideas to help you think of who could be helpful.
Family members? Not everyone has close family network around them so I understand that might not be the best option.
Close friend? One thing to remember is if you tell a friend, they may not keep it to themselves if you ask them too. Confidentially is key but not every friend will respect that so make sure you can trust that person not to go telling others. Although if you are the friend, tell the person that if it is something what is a risk to themselves or others that you will need to tell someone like a doctor or any other professional, because it’s important they are safe!
Telephone Support Numbers,
There are a lot of support numbers where you can ring for help. They are confidential and respect privacy. If they are concerned in terms of you being risk to yourself and others, then they will report it the appropriate agencies. You can Google for numbers as I am not going to put them here as readers may be from all over the world and the numbers may not be correct for them.
I was going to be a volunteer for a charity where you can get text support. I never carried out the training as circumstances changed and I could not follow through with it because of the hours etc.
Have I missed anything? Comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will review and add it to this post if necessary.
Thanks for ready! -Adam.
