Thanks for writing to Sam
Sam reads every letter, but can only reply to a few each week. If your letter is chosen, you’ll be able to see Sam’s reply on the website. Even if your letter isn’t published, there are lots of ways to get support:
- read other letters to find a similar one and see Sam’s advice
- post on the message boards to ask for support
- get ideas to cope in the Calm Zone.
New letters are published each week, so check back in a couple of weeks to see if yours has been answered.
