Mood Swings

Your Question

How do I handle my mood swings?


From Pat / 15 April 2020


Hello, welcome to Ask Pat,

It sounds like you want help in handling your mood swings which is very positive and it is very brave of you to contact us.

It would be important for you to find out why you are having changes in your mood and what if anything triggers them. On our website, we have a section on HOW I FEEL. You may find some useful information there.

You have the right to talk to a trusted adult about how you are feeling, that could be a Parent, Relative or Friend, someone who knows you well enough that could give you some support.

Childline has a phone service which is open 24 hours a day on 1800 66 66 66, a text service at 50101, and a Live Messaging service here on this website. All of these services are free and are non judgmental. Childline is here to listen, support and help you to explore the options that are available to you. We would be very happy to hear from you.

Once again, you have been very brave in contacting us.

Take care,
