Step 2: Talk to someone

After a distressing experience you need to surround yourself with loved ones and remind yourself of the good in your life. Alternatively, you may benefit from getting things off your chest to a counselor.

Either way, you are not alone, and you should never feel like you are.

If there is nobody in your life who you feel you can open up to, get in touch with the Samaritans. They’re a nationwide charity with a 24 hour phone line. Their volunteers are ready to listen to whatever challenges you’re facing. Call them now on 116 123 (UK only)
