Young people may be experiencing mental health issues that haven't previously surfaced, due to the current pandemic and restrictions. Or perhaps issues that have appeared before are now exacerbated by feelings of loneliness or isolation. It's still  possible to seek professional help for these issues through the current restrictions. Here's how.

 

Here are some questions to consider about Bella's situation:
  • What were some of the challenges Bella experienced in seeking help for her depression?
  • Why did Bella find ReachOut a helpful support service?
  • What other support services would have been helpful for Bella to access?

If you're experiencing a mental health difficulty at this time, ReachOut is an awesome resource available for young people to access for free. ReachOut offers different levels of support for all types of issues; from tips to dealing with exam stress or feelings of loneliness, to 'Urgent Help' resources that give young people one-on-one support during tough times.
