Help us be here for children

Sometimes I have suicidal thoughts when things get too much for me. Lately, these thoughts haven’t been going away. It’s all I can think about.

 

I’m feeling so overwhelmed with everything and not having any choice in what happens to me. I’m really struggling. I just don’t want to be here anymore.

Sioned's story

My home life was always chaotic. My parents argued a lot and when I was 13 they split up and my dad moved out. I was trying to function as a normal teenager but it was hard to pretend that everything was OK.

If I hadn't had Childline to turn to then I would have maybe killed myself or gone down the wrong route in life. They saved my life so many times.

How you can help

Children shouldn't have to cope alone. Whatever they're facing, Childline is here to listen. But we can only be here with your help.

Amber's story

"When I was 9, I was sexually abused by a close family member. By the time I was 12, it was destroying me. I spoke to Childline and they helped me build up the courage to confide in a teacher.

 

After suffering anxiety and depression, I was referred to NPSCC's Letting the Future In service, which helps children recover after sexual abuse, and had weekly therapy sessions.

 

It's made an amazing difference to me. I don't think I would be here at all now if it wasn't for the NSPCC."

Amber's story

"When I was 9, I was sexually abused by a close family member. By the time I was 12, it was destroying me. I spoke to Childline and they helped me build up the courage to confide in a teacher, something I'd wanted to do for 2 years."

The case went to trial but collapsed due to a lack of evidence - which was a very distressing experience. After suffering anxiety and depression, Amber was referred to Letting the Future In, our therapeutic recovery service for children who've been sexually abused."
