Answer

Hi, you are very welcome to Ask Pat. Thank you for reaching out to us. 

You are saying as a child you want to die and are wondering what now. You have been very brave and strong to reach out and tell us how you feel and ask for help. Thank you so much for trusting us with your thoughts. We know it can be difficult, but we also know how great it is for young people to share their problems. Talking about and sharing what is going on for you is a big step forward. 

You have a right to get help and support on how you are feeling right now. You have the right to feel safe and live a happy life, and not be hurt in any way. Have you spoken to a member of your family about how you are feeling? Sometimes it may be difficult to open up to those close to us and tell them what is going on. But talking really does help. Do you have another trusted adult or person in your life who you feel comfortable talking to, if you feel that you cannot talk to your parents? This adult can be an aunt, uncle, teacher, or a school counsellor. You have the right to be listened to, to be heard, and to be supported.
