AS teenagers in Mid Ulster wait patiently for their exam results, ChildLine is offering support to those who are feeling anxious or worried.

ChildLine is encouraging young people in Mid Ulster to contact the service by phone or online with any anxieties or worries about exam results, either before or after they receive their results.

Elaine Chalmers, ChildLine area manager said: “Although many young people will be enjoying the break from school, we understand that many young people’s minds will be on their upcoming exam results.

“We hear from lots of young people each year who are worried or panicking about their results, so we want to let them know that they are not alone and that ChildLine is here to listen to them.”

Parents, family and trusted adults can help young people who may be worrying by making space and time to ask them how they are feeling about their exam results and talking to them about their concerns.

The helpline is also available to anyone who wants to speak to a counsellor about their results on 0800 1111.
