Guys, its me again and this blog is all about World Mental Health Day, WMHD is a day to support all who suffer from mental health and also to raise awareness of all the great people that work and volunteer in all of the agencies across the UK.
As a teenager its difficult sometimes express your feelings and to also understand certain feelings and emotions that us teens go through – now I am not a professional when it comes to giving advice and I do get lots of DM’s, emails and inbox’s from fans both boys and girls that ask me for my advice – I always suggest over a agency or to speak to someone close to them.
Ms Esther Rantzen is patron of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood and founded ChildLine, what a inspiration and amazing woman.
Now sometimes it may be hard to talk to someone and it may take some time, but it will make you feel better that you have someone there to listen and to help support you – one agency that is great at this is ChildLine, ChildLine has helped over 4 Million Children & celebrates its 31st this year. Thanks to generations of skilled and committed staff and volunteers, they’ve saved thousands of young lives and have been a place for young people when they have nowhere else to turn.
So what makes them so amazing?
- So what is it that makes Childline such a special and unique service?
- The service is there for young people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
- Children make the choice to reach out to Childline, trusting that Childline will work with them in partnership to offer them comfort and protection.
- It’s a safe way to ask for help because Childline confidentiality means that a young person can contact us knowing that we will only tell another agency if the young person asks for direct help or if they are in a life-threatening situation.
- Children and young people can contact Childline about any problem big or small.
- Young people will be listened to without judgement no matter what they are calling about.
- Volunteer counsellors come from diverse backgrounds but all have one thing in common, that they want to be there to support young people.
- The Childline website has information on everything from bullying and questions relating to gender identity, to homework and how to combat exam stress.
- Young people can contact Childline in different ways depending on what suits them best: by calling us, emailing, or chatting to a counsellor online. They can also use the message boards and support each other online. There is no other service quite like it in the UK!
They are so amazing and I suggest to all my fans out there who are going through something – get online and see how they can help you.
