Post-results day support from Samaritans

Fri, 16 Aug 2019

A charity is urging students on the Island to "put wellbeing ahead of grades" and ask for help if they are struggling.

The Samaritans are offering support for anyone who may be anxious or those who do not get the results they were hoping for.

Manx students received their A-level grades on Thursday and GCSE students will find out their marks next Thursday. 

Isle of Man Samaritans is advising anyone feeling under pressure to speak to someone they trust, or call its service for confidential, non-judgmental support.

Samaritans offer confidential judgement-free advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number is 116 123 and it is free to call. Alternatively, you can email
