Family Break-up

Families come in all kinds of combinations but it can be a really upsetting, confusing and stressful time when relationships between family members break down. If there are disagreements or arguments, this can make home life really tough which can impact on how you feel, how you cope at school and even whether you want to hang out with friends.

Lots of young people worry about their parents/carers and siblings during a separation and also worry about family finances.

  1. Check out the help pages for top tips on managing worrylow mood or others that may be relevant.

  2. It’s important to let your parents/carers, a teacher or a trusted adult know how you feel.
