I Need Help. What Do I Do Now?
TeenHealthFX is sorry to hear about what you are going through. It is important to remember that you are valued and important. Don’t give up on yourself and continue to try to get help. Just because one hotline does not work does not mean another option will not help. Sometimes finding a good therapist or the right support is like finding a pair of shoes – it may take a few tries.
There is more help out there than “the hotline” you may have tried. In addition, keep trying to reach out to a trusted adult, teacher, school counselor, or school nurse who can also help you get the help you may need. Below is a list of options available to you.
