Here is some expert advice

Talk with your friends and parents, carers or teachers. They might have different viewpoints to offer. Don’t be afraid to express your opinion, even if they don’t have the same view or opinion as you.

Take it easy on yourself! Sometimes when something bad happens, the stress might make you more sensitive to normal day to day events and make things seem more extreme than usual.

During stressful times keep some routine and a ‘quiet’ space or activities where you can feel calm and relaxed.

Turn it off! Sometimes the best way to work through a problem is to step away and focus on something else for a while. Reading or watching it over and over can sometimes just create more stress.

Take care of yourself. This means making sure you eat well and get enough sleep! It’s easier to face problems when you feel your best.

Take things one step at a time. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to have all the answers at once. Challenges can sometimes make us feel out of control and we can act without thinking things through carefully.

Do some things that help you feel good about yourself.

Seek support if needed.

Know that it’s okay to make mistakes and not be perfect.
