Struggling with family issues like fighting or jealousy? Contact a hotline in Northern Ireland for confidential help

Trouble at home can impact every part of your life, including school, work, relationships, and your mental and physical wellbeing. Families should support you, so when they become the problem, it really hurts. You’re not alone, there are 3 hotlines in Northern Ireland where you can get the support you need. Reach out if you're experiencing the following:

  • Family members who depend on you for things they cannot do for themselves.
  • Frequent yelling, screaming, bickering or fights within the family.
  • Family members who ask too much of you or depend on you for support.
  • Problems around separation and divorce, including jealousy, living with new family members and more.
  • Abuse or neglect from your parent, guardian, sibling or spouse.
  • Serious family issues such as divorce, addiction, loss of a family member, or sexual abuse.
  • A sibling, parent or guardian who is absent physically or emotionally.
  • Stress in the family, caused by issues with housing, money or unemployment.

Experiencing problems at home is extremely challenging because it may feel like there is nowhere for you to escape to. When the people you live with are the source of your pain, home may no longer feel like a safe haven.

You may feel alone if you're experiencing family problems. You may think that nobody else has been through what you're going through and that nobody will relate. However, there are hotline volunteers and counselors in Northern Ireland who care about the challenges you're facing and want to help you.
