1. Identification: Knowing what to look for
It can be really challenging to know what to look for, when to worry and when to take action. As a parent, partner or coach your relationship with the person you’re worried about can differ hugely and it is not uncommon to feel unsure about your role in supporting them. Watch the B.R.A.V.E video, created by Le Va, to hear a group of young people talk about how you can best look out for signs they’re struggling.
If you are concerned, or have a gut feeling that something is not right, you could make the decision to speak with them, offer your help or work with them to find a place that provides support.
If you’re really concerned or you think they are at risk of harming themselves or somebody else, then you need to seek help now. Click below to see a list of emergency contacts.
