What can I do if stress is taking over?

Try to look after yourself by eating well, resting, taking a little exercise and the time to do the things you enjoy. For more ideas check out the Whats Up challenge.

You can speak to a school nurse at weekly confidential 'drop-ins' in secondary schools. If you are not sure when these are send a text to ChatHealth to find out 07507 333356.

If you're 16 or over, you can also refer yourself for free support from Suffolk Wellbeing Service. This could be in the form of short term counselling or a telephone call from a professional, or wellbeing workshops or classes. For more information, visit the Suffolk Wellbeing Service website.
