How to Cope

How can you cope when you are struggling with your emotional wellbeing or mental health? This list of suggestions is based on the real experiences of other young people. If you have other ideas from your own experiences then please share your suggestions.

Talk To Someone !

There is nothing worse than suffering in silence! If you don't feel able to talk with a parent/guardian, then try to talk to your GP, a favourite teacher, a school counsellor, or even a friend.

Look after your physical health

Your physical health has a direct impact on your mental health, so make sure that you maintain a healthy diet and take regular exercise.

Balance work and play

It's easy to think you can manage pressure and stress by working harder and harder, but it's important to keep a balance in your life. Try to weigh up the things you need to do with the things you want to do.

Get involved

When you're feeling low it's easy to become reclusive and to withdraw from activities, but this is when it's most important to keep yourself involved. Helping others and volunteering can be motivating and rewarding, the feeling of giving something back to society can help to bolster your self-esteem.

Act opposite

When you feel yourself having negative thoughts and emotions, make a concious effort to act opposite to those feelings. When you are tempted to mull things over, make an effort to do something active or creative which will help distract you from the unhelpfull thoughts.
