About The Guide

Check in with Your Friends

Published 9th February 2022

A free online safety guide on checking in with your friends.

Young people need to learn to take care of their minds as well as their bodies. Lots of things can damage the way they feel and think, and it’s more common than people realise – one in every five children, for example, struggles with their mental health. Sending memes, jokes and messages online is easy – but finding the right words to talk to a friend who’s having a hard time can be tricky. Designed to be printed out and displayed in schools, our poster could help your child find the right time – and the right way – to check in with a friend.

In the guide, you'll find tips such as sending nice messages, asking how you can help someone and being a good listener.
