I feel that I need things to be tidy and in a certain order

Worries are a part of everyone’s life. You can worry about your family, friends, school, your pets, anything. Sometimes your worries might become really important. These might upset you so much that you find things to do to make yourself feel better and then you have to keep doing them. Sometimes these things don’t make a lot of sense, like checking over and over again.

What can you do if you have worries like these?

First let someone know, perhaps a grown up like a parent or teacher or someone you trust. Any of these people can help you to get help.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
