THINGS TO DO FIRST 

  • It seems like you’re going through a difficult time in your life right now, but we are glad that you have the courage to reach out to us here at TeenCentral. Reaching out for help is the first step in obtaining resources and talking about how you’re feeling.
  • Sometimes talking to someone in person about how we’re feeling helps us express emotions. Do you have someone you can talk to? A trusted teacher, coach, religious leader, guidance counselor, parents, or extended family is a great place to start when thinking of people you could talk to. While it may be scary at first to start the conversation, you might find out that someone else is struggling with something similar in their lives.
  • Lastly, if you are ever feeling unsafe, or you feel so sad that you have no one you can turn to please reach out to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline. They are available 24 hours a day, you can contact them by calling 1-800-273-8255 or texting “Hello” to 741-741.
