Importance of Talking to a Trusted Adult

Talk, talk, talk

Talking about your problems to someone you trust means they can try to help you see things differently.

They may be able to give you new ideas about how to cope, or help you change things in your life that worry you. Once you tell someone, they can be there for you in the future, too.

Putting things into words helps. Sometimes it's just good to say what's on your mind. Talking to someone could make you feel like you don't have to deal with it on your own and make things feel more manageable.

Remember, often the first step to feeling better is to talk to someone.
