Alternatives and Coping Methods. - January 25th 2018, 01:09 AM

Hi everybody,

For many years our "Alternatives" thread has been one of the most popular on the site, and it has given many people ideas for combating anything from self harm to addictions.

We have now updated and expanded this list to bring you the Alternatives and Coping Methods resource, which lists hundreds of different ideas to help you get through difficult periods in your life. Whether that difficulty is the urge to self harm, anger, sadness, a panic attack or addiction, this resource can help you to cope with it.

The page is split into several different categories, so whether you're at the start of your journey, a little further along or in full recovery mode there's plenty of ideas to help you.

You can access the page here: http://www.teenhelp.org/alternatives/

I hope this helps but if you have any further ideas to add please let our Resource Editor team know.

Take care,
Rob.

This is such a great resource!


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Yay!! So excited about this. It looks great, Rob!


When I look into the eyes of an animal
I do not see an animal
I see a living being
I see a friend
I feel a soul.

you cannot withstand the storm
she whispered back
i am the storm.

I love this so much! Fantastic work, Resource Editors.

until midnight, and we'll be howling,
