We know that your life is not simple and all fun all the time. And we completely understand that sometimes, you need to talk about some serious problems. We definitely want you to get help with those problems -- keeping it inside isn't the answer. But some things are just too complicated to be dealt with here on our website, and we don't want you to get bad advice from someone who doesn't really know what they're talking about.
If there's no one in your life that you feel you can reach out to (for instance a family member, clergy person, teacher, doctor, counselor, or other trusted adult) -- we've compiled this list of ways to get the help you really want and need.
