Need a little help?

Hey guys,

We all know that life for people in our age group is tougher now than in the past. And we all know that people need some help to be able to get through the tough times, no matter if that period lasts a day, week, month or year. So with that in mind, this thread is for any resources that could help someone. With one caveat. We're all in the teenage/young adult age range, so these should be FREE. If they're not, we'll make a note of it. This will take the form of websites, helplines, etc. And remember, there's always someone there. If you need to talk to anyone, about anything, we're all here. If you want a chat, feel free to PM me or wnolan, or anyone here tbh. We're all here for you.
