Be inspired by other young people who found the hope and help they needed – and it all started with a single conversation.

Depression

Finding hope through talking.

It’s normal to go through short periods of sadness. But if the feeling lasts for more than a few weeks, then it may be time to talk to someone. Depression isn’t your fault or something to be ashamed of—it’s a real medical condition, and treatment is available.

Anxiety

Discovering relief with anxiety management.

Everyone will experience anxiety from time to time, but is yours interfering with you doing your best? If so, you may benefit from reaching out to someone you trust for help. It is possible to find ways to manage your anxiety and feel more relaxed.

Substance Abuse

Taking back control.

Experimenting with drugs or alcohol as a teenager may seem like a normal thing to do, especially if your friends or family are using around you,  but it’s a behavior that can be dangerous to your health and safety. If you’re concerned about your substance use, it’s never too late to talk to someone about it.

Suicide

There’s always a better way. You are worth it.

No matter how bad things get, you never need to resort to hurting yourself or taking your own life. Often, the idea of suicide can be linked to another issue that can be addressed, such as breakup, depression, bullying, or any other stressful situation.

We’re here to help start the conversation.

Just Tell One’s mission is to give Western New York youth and young adults the tools and confidence to start the conversation about their mental health or behavioral health issues.

Attention Educators:
