Answer

Hi there, and thank you for contacting Ask Alex.
 
Firstly, well done for your bravery in reaching out and seeking help. You’ve mentioned feeling sad and emotional, and you’re wondering what to do.
 
It sounds like you’re going through a tough time at the moment. We’re curious about how long you’ve been feeling this way and what might have triggered or contributed to these feelings.
 
Regarding what you can do, do you have someone in your life—such as a family member, friend, teacher—that you could talk to about your feelings? They might be able to support you in seeking help from an organisation that specialises in supporting individuals experiencing similar emotions.
 
If you’re 16 or older, you can visit your local GP, who can refer you to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). If you’re under 16, you’ll need to be accompanied by a guardian to the GP. Additionally, your GP may suggest other services that could assist you.
 
If you ever feel the need to talk and are unsure who to turn to, remember that Childline is here for you. We provide a listening ear and support whenever you need it. You can reach us at 1800 66 66 66 or use Live Chat on our website, www.childline.ie.
