If you are worried about a friend, it’s important to encourage them to seek support. Recommend they speak with a trusted adult – e.g. a parent, teacher, school counsellor, GP - or if they’re not comfortable with speaking to someone face-to-face, there are online and telephone counselling services available.
If you’re feeling unsure about how to have a conversation with your friend, or you’re worried that you might say the wrong thing, you might find the Check-in App by BeyondBlue helpful!
