Young people coping with separation and divorce

7 May 2019

Maybe your parents have been arguing a lot lately and perhaps even thinking about separation or divorce. This can be a very difficult time but it is important to remember it is not your fault.

You might feel alone and will probably be very upset, but there are lots of other young people who are going through exactly the same thing as you. There are also lots of places you can go to get help, including:

  • Childline - provides help and advice to young people on a whole range of issues. You can call them free on 0800 1111.
  • The Samaritans - provide a 24 hour service for anyone who is worried or anxious and doesn’t know who to talk to.
