"Telling my parents how I was feeling was the hardest thing I've ever done but my mum was so kind and now I know I'm not in this alone"

Tell us more about your experiences

We want to improve the support that is available to young people aged 13-24. But to do that, we need to hear about your experiences outside of school – the things that make you feel sad or overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. We want to know where you go when you feel like you need help and what more could be done to support people your age.
