Supporting young people with asthma
Asthma attacks can be frightening. Being able to recognise them early on and act in the right way may stop them getting worse. Sometimes the attacks can be too bad to manage at home. It is important to know when to call for help and what to do while you wait for that help to arrive. As a young person, you may not always be with an adult when you are having an asthma attack, so it’s important your friends know the signs and what to do too.
