Ask Sam

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.

Find out more about Ask Sam.

Sam can only choose a few letters each week.

If you need a private reply you can contact a counsellor for free by calling 0800 11 11 or talk online.

Message from Sam...  Ask Sam

It’s nearly time to go back to school, college or to find work. These can be huge changes which might be difficult for some – or for some things might stay the same, which could also be hard. I’d be interested in hearing your feelings about the end of the summer holidays.

I only respond to a few letters each week and it’s not right away – talking to a ChildLine counsellor is the best way to get support if you need it right now.

Take care,
Sam
