Services that might be
able to help you
There are lots of services available for young people and you can choose which one is right for you.
The most important thing is for you to get some support if life is feeling bad and you're feeling hopeless.
Perhaps you could get in touch with some of the organisations listed below and ask them what they could do for you? Most of them will be able to offer you a confidential service.
ReRun 07958 475075 (text or phone) can provide help and advice on most things that affect young people or they can put you in touch with someone locally in Dorset if they can't help or you want specialist advice, eg. health matters, school, bullying, drugs, alcohol, sex, relationship problems, abuse, self harm, benefits, housing, employment etc.
