Why me? Am I alone?

Firstly, this is not your fault. You're not alone. 

Thousands of children and young people, like you, go through the child protection process every day across the country. 

If you're unsure about why this is happening, or what's happening, speak to your social worker or advocate. Ask as many questions as you want. Their role is to listen and help support you. 

Your advocate's role is to make sure your voice is heard. Your social worker's role is to get everyone to work together to keep you safe. 

Don't forget: it's OK to not be OK. There are lots of people trying to help you.
