Having feelings is normal, however, we can express them in a way that can negatively impact on ourselves and those around us. Learning to express our emotions in a healthy way helps build resilience and protects children from negative mental health outcomes as teenagers.

What works best?

  • All feelings are welcome (positive and negative) so avoid telling people how they should or shouldn’t feel.
  • It’s not helpful to interrupt or give advice when someone is sharing how they feel.

  • Follow up on any concerns after the conversation has finished. Try using our problem solving technique.
