When someone in your family has an illness, a disability or a problem with drugs/alcohol, you can have a lot of confusing feelings. That’s normal and “Dealing with feelings” will help you find out what to do about some of them, or email us to tell us how you are feeling today.
Most illnesses can be helped by doctors, but some are more serious. There is info on this page that might help if you know someone who has died or you are worried that someone might die.
