Getting Help If You're Worried
If something’s happened or you're worried, there's always someone you can talk to.
Things have been very different this year. And it’s been difficult for everyone.
You might be worried about:
- things that have happened to you or someone else
- not knowing where to go when you’re scared
- being at school, your exams or the future
- coping with your mental health.
Whatever’s happening, you don’t have to cope alone.
Where can I get help?
You can get help from a wide range of people at Notre Dame depending on the issue that you need support with.
There are lots of other ways outside of school you can ask for support:
- Talk to an adult you trust
Talking to an adult you trust is really important. It could be a teacher, someone in your family or anyone else you feel safe with.
- Speak to Childline
Get free, confidential support from a Childline counsellor about anything you want to. You can talk to Childline from 7:30am-3:30am every day, either online, by calling 0800 1111 or by sending a message from our website.
- Visit your doctor or a school nurse
You can still make an appointment with your doctor any time. And you can usually see them by yourself. Even if you can’t see your doctor in person, you can usually talk over phone. Find out more about visiting your doctor.
- Contact the police
If you’re feeling unsafe, you can always talk to the police. In an emergency, you can call 999 to get help straight away. You can also report online sexual abuse or exploitation to CEOP.
