Spotting children who may need support
Do you know a child who is worried about someone else’s substance misuse?
- Are they having problems at school, with attendance, punctuality or behaviour? At home? In the community?
- Do they appear to be angry, unco-operative, feeling hurt, unable to cope or may experimenting with drugs or alcohol themselves?
It may be hard for a young person to talk about their fears and feelings about those they love, but it frequently helps.
