Resources on Childline


This is your space for writing or drawing about your feelings. Or anything you want. Creativity can help you calm down or make sense of things. It doesn’t matter how good you are at art. Anyone can use the Art box to express themselves!


There are lots of way to feel calmer. It's about finding what works for you. Try some of our breathing exercises, activities, games and videos to help let go of stress.


Games and puzzles are a great way to distract yourself, lift your mood or settle your mind.  When you need to feel calm, playing games that help you work through your feelings or give you a different focus can be really helpful.


The Childline Helper is here to find the right support for you.
