For me logo

For Me is a new app from Childline and is a new way to get advice and support on lots of topics from Childline via your smart phone. For Me was created by 4 teenagers who realised there was an urgent need for young people to have easy access to confidential advice and support. Topics include issues such as school and exam stress, personal issues, self-harm and mental health.  With this app you are in control: whether you prefer to talk it through with one of our trained counsellors, get help online from people your own age, or read through tips and techniques in your own time, with For Me, the choice is your.
