Ask Sam

Something on your mind? Or need some support?

Anyone can write in with their problem. I respond to a few letters each week. You can also read my advice to people who have similar problems to you. 

Ask me a question

You can ask me about anything you want, there's nothing too big or small.

What you need to know:

  • Sam reads every letter, but can only respond to a few each week
  • Sam's replies are public, never private, so others can read them
  • Sam will remove personal info from your letter to keep it anonymous
  • if yours is chosen, you'll see it under one of the topics below

Message from Sam

This week is the 1 year anniversary of the terrorist attack in Manchester. I received lots of letters from young people who were affected by this and I still hear from people who are trying to cope. This week I’ll be answering those letters and hoping to help anyone struggling with feelings about worries of the world.
