Writing a letter to Sam will be unavailable in the early hours of 5th May 2016 while we do some important work to upgrade the website. If you need to talk to someone urgently, please call 0800 1111

Something on your mind? Ask Sam is ChildLine’s problem page where you can read letters from other young people. You can also ask for advice yourself and Sam might choose your letter to include below.

Message from Sam...  Ask Sam

This can be a stressful time of year as revision and exams start to become the focus. I’d be really interested in hearing any problems people are having with school and exams.

Remember that I don’t write back to you personally. Each week I pick a few letters that have been sent to me and answer them publically on my page. If you want to talk privately you can do that with a counsellor.
