‘What's on your mind?’ Card

This card was designed by our young volunteers who told us that one of the big issues they face is not having the right words to use to describe how they are feeling.  The ‘What's on your mind?’ card is full of practical tips to help you think about where to go, what to say and who to talk to.

Just click on the card to download your own.
