Support - Where to go and who to talk to...

When things are difficult to deal with on your own it’s important to get support. You may have people in your life that you already do or can get support from. Sometimes that’s enough and other times we need more than that. Sometimes just having someone like a friend or family member listen to how we’re feeling is all we need to feel better. Other times a professional’s knowledge can help us figure out how to deal with things that are more tricky.

 

Remember that there are heaps of different places you can get support. Support can come in all different forms, and sometimes we have to try a few different kinds to find something that suits your individual needs or situation. FC Staff are there to help you find the best services for your needs too so if you're unsure email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
