How are you? Good...
This episode of PROJECT ROCKIT TV challenges this standard interaction that so many of us have on an everyday basis. The reality is, sometimes it's hard to open up when things aren't 'good,' but we've got to let people support us in order for things to get better.
Although the online world is full of opportunities to widen your social connections, finding the best channels for support isn’t always easy. We recommend seeking out the type of supports that can play a stable role in your day-to-day life. This could mean reaching out to someone in person – a family member, teacher, school counsellor or friend. You may also benefit from professional support? There are some awesome services out there waiting for you and we’ve listed three below:
