Breathing Space is a free, confidential phone line you can call when you're feeling down. You might be worried about something - money, work, relationships, exams - or maybe you're just feeling fed up and can't put your finger on why.

Sharing your feelings with your friends or talking with your family can be difficult - pretending everything is ok seems by far the easiest way to deal with things.

Maybe you're afraid to let down your guard and tell those close to you what's really on your mind - you don't want to worry them, or perhaps you just don't know how to explain to them the way you are feeling.

That's why you might want to talk to the people at Breathing Space. They're available to listen to you when you're feeling low. They can offer advice, or suggest people who can help you with more specific problems.

The service is completely confidential and it's a free phone number 0800 838 587 so it won't show up in your phone bills.
