Try to encourage the person you are concerned about to talk about how they are feeling. Remember to listen openly and respect what they say.
If the person does not want to talk about their problem or denies they have a problem, you may need to talk to a professional or discuss the issue with someone else who cares for that person.
Professionals can discuss your concerns with you and help you decide what steps to take to help someone you care about. Professionals can include GPs, doctors, school counsellors, therapists or teachers.
You can also consider sharing your concerns with another individual you trust who cares for the person you are worried about. You could talk to a parent, sibling, carer or another friend.
