Sexual health is an important part of physical and mental health as well as your emotional and social wellbeing. It's important to take care of your sexual health and is something we should all talk about! Do you need any support? Are you dealing with difficulties and struggling to understand your relationships? Help is available for you!
When a young person loses control of a nude image of themselves, it can be very distressing. It’s important that young people don’t feel judged when this happens and should be reassured that they haven’t done anything wrong.
With the support of someone you trust (parent, guardian, teacher, professional), you can use the NSPCC Report Remove tool to help manage a situation of shared images online.
Check out the links below to learn more about this tool and how it can help.
