PSHE - Support and advice information
If you are affected by any of the issues raised in PSHE lessons, don’t bottle it up – talk to someone; friends, family, your form tutor, SPL or any other trusted adult in college.
If you don’t feel comfortable talking to any of these people, then there are a huge number of agencies and organisations who can offer help, advice, support and guidance. Some of them are listed below.
