Autism is a condition that affects how someone learns, communicates and builds relationships with others. Their different processing of the world may sometimes become overwhelming for them. Noticing that they are different might cause difficult feelings, too.
Bullying is when someone does something deliberately to hurt, upset or threaten you. Bullying can be really difficult to deal with and make you feel very upset or low in confidence. Bullying can happen face-to-face, one-to-one or in groups or online. No one has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied, it can be helpful to talk to someone who can support you.
A lot of young people worry about their body image. However, for some, these difficulties can take over and turn into a serious eating disorder. Someone with an eating disorder might feel they need to be on a strict diet, exercise, or find other ways to lose weight to cope with how they are feeling – and they might not know how to stop.
Some young people feel uncomfortable with the gender they were assigned at birth whilst others are unhappy with the gender role that society requires. If you are confused about your gender identity, you might find it helpful talking to someone or receiving professional support.
