Do you know of a service which helps people through difficult times and could come in useful? If you do please share the details of the organisation and what they specialise in.

NB: You could also take a look at the helpful links page of this site. http://www.problempages.co.uk/links.php

The Connexions Service

If you are aged 13 to 19 and you don't find the answers you are looking for on the ProblemPages.co.uk forums then try the Connxions service. They offer help and advice confidentially and they themselves are professionals. You can speak to a PA (Personal Advisor) through your school (most schools) or you can ring up your local centre and ask to speak to someone. It helps to talk and that is what they are there for. If you don't feel comfortable speaking face to face then you can text, speak to them on the phone, email them or even have a webchat with a advisor through the site.

Take a look at the national site here:

http://www.connexions-direct.com

Or phone them on:

0808 001 3219

They are there to help and guide you through your problem.

Does anyone want to share a helpful link that they think will benefit somebody else?

FRANK

You might have seen advertisements for this recently. FRANK provides free and confidential information about drugs. The website talktofrank.com contains an 'A-Z' of drugs, an extensive directory with detailed information covering various aspects of each drug listed such as 'The risks' and 'The law', and you can send an e-mail or use the contact form to ask for more information.

The website also has a 'Getting help' section, where you can make a request for information leaflets to be sent to you in the post, and the 'Worried about someone?' section provides advice about looking out for friends and family. In addition to the website, you can contact FRANK by telephone twenty four hours a day seven days a week.

The telephone number is 0800 77 66 00, and deaf users can textphone 0800 917 8765. You can talk to FRANK in 120 languages as translators are available if required. Calls from landlines are free and won't show up on the phone bill. Calls from a mobile vary in cost depending on which network you're on and might show up on the bill.

The website is www.why-me.org.uk and it is for young people focusing on respect, hope, encouragement and opportunities

What is the aim of the Why Me? website?
• To encourage and promote support opportunities.
• To encourage HOPE; Honesty, Opportunity, Potential and Encouragement.
• To promote self-respect and respect towards others.
• To outline the pitfalls one can encounter in life and strategies to overcome these problems.
• To offer a choice in possible solutions to avoid an individual feeling trapped or alienated.

Who will benefit from such a project?
1. Angry, isolated, bored young people.
2. Youth groups struggling to create new activities.
3. Anyone interested in research of the needs of young people.
4. Parents, families, of troubled young people
5. Anyone concerned about raising crime rates attributed to young people.
6. Anyone concerned about the future of our communities.
7. Anyone concerned about the raising trend towards deliberate self-harm and suicide among young people.

Our Mission

• The main aim of the Why Me site is to identify situations which cause stress and depression in young people, identify the support needs of those young people and sign post appropriate sources of support, based on this information.

• The Why Me site responds to the needs of young people by providing a safe place where they can discuss issues which effect them. It demonstrates the consequences of choices made by an individual, using true-life stories written by young people for young people, in the hope that honest information will help support others to make different choices. Prevention is better than cure.

It`s exactly the same idea as problem pages, but mostly helping people with sexual questions and problems.

Hope this helps. Lou X
