Ratings and Reviews
Being a teenage girl that self-harms and has really bad social anxiety, this is the closest thing to a miracle for me. I have had tremendous amounts of support from these counsellors when I felt my lowest, and have helped me through so many hard times. To be completely honest, I don’t know whether I would still be here without them. They told me not to give up; and cared when no-one else did. They are amazing, and I am so grateful to them for everything.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs the help :)
Really great, but problem
This app is really great! I have found it really useful, and have got lots of support. One thing to improve though, is that it's generally a bit slow, so it might take a while to load, sometimes two screen come up asking for a password, and then I only have to enter it once, or the scrolling is laggy or broken up. An update would be appreciated? Thanks! (Sorry to the developer who replied before, but I just worked it out so it's okay!)
Thanks for the update, and we’re glad that you were able to use the message boards!
We’re working hard to update the app to fix some minor bugs, but we’re really glad that you’re using the app in the meantime.
Remember that if you need to talk to us about anything on the app you can send us an email from your Childline account. You can do this by going to Get Support and selecting Emails.

This app has helped me so much! I think that it’s so much better than online because it feels more secure! You can still do the same things as on their website. Having a pin on the app adds a more sense of security but is also useful if you’re on a shared device! I think that everyone should download it as it supports you with having a better mental health!
