How can I cope with anxiety?

From Pat / 20 January 2020


Welcome to Ask Pat. You are asking for information on how you can cope with anxiety.

You have taken the first step by reaching out for help so well done! If you are struggling with anxiety you have a right to get support and information around this. There is information available on the Mental Health Difficulties section of this website or on

You also have a right to talk to a trusted adult about this. It might help to talk to a parent, teacher, your family doctor, a school counsellor or another family member.

It might help to talk to Childline. Childline is always here to listen and to support you. You can call Childline on 1800 66 66 66 (24 hours a day), text Childline on 50101 (10am – 4am every day) or chat with Childline online on this site (10am – 4am every day).

Take care,
