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've had 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
  • if you need support now or want to talk privately, contact a counsellor for free on 0800 1111.

Next week

It can be hard to talk about difficult feelings and emotions. Opening up can be a challenge - especially if people around you make it sound like a weakness. I know that boys can sometimes struggle with this, but I'd like to hear from anyone who's holding in difficult feelings and finding it hard to get the support they need.
