Tips

  • If a friend/family member tells you something very serious (e.g. they are being bullied/harassed/abused/self-harm themselves/they have an eating disorder e.g anorexia or bulimia/say they want to commit suicide/talk about suicide) these issues must never be kept secret, this is when you must tell and get professional help.
  • For real emergencies- Dial 999 (it's 911 in the United States) for an ambulance.
  • It's real simple, do not do anything you would regret later.

Warnings

  • Don't annoy people and avoid a fight if you can.
