Are you worried about a friend?

At times we all go through difficult periods and sometimes you may be concerned about a close friend because you have noticed changes in their mood, appearance and behaviour. Your friend might have even confided in you that they have a problem.

If you are worried about a friend, the best thing you can do is let them know you are concerned. They may really appreciate you asking how they are. You should also encourage them to talk to a trusted adult who can do something about their problem, like a parent, teacher or school nurse. You could also use this website to help you find out about mental health problems.

Hearing someone else’s worries or problems can be distressing for you too. Make sure you talk to someone like your parents, another friend, teacher or school nurse about how you are feeling. By looking after yourself you will also look after your friend.
