When Things Go Wrong

When things go wrong, it’s easy to blame ourselves, feel upset, scared, worried or confused or to try find reasons to justify why it happened.

The most important thing to remember if you feel troubled or concerned about the situation you are in, is to confide in someone you trust to get the support and advice you need. You can also approach professional organisations who exist to help, protect and support you so you don’t have to deal with it alone or in silence.

If you need advice, help, or someone on your side, or advocacy — someone to speak on your behalf — you could try talking to Meic. Meic will always listen to you.
