Providing quick ways to get help and to exit


The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families 'On My Mind' section has buttons for 'Urgent help' and 'Leave the site' on every page.

The 'Leave this page' button takes the user to YouTube.

The 'Urgent help' button takes the user to a page of helpline numbers.

The buttons stay fixed in the same place on every page to that they are always visible.

Key guidance

Make the button or buttons clearly visible.

Place it or them consistently on every page so they can be reached quickly.


  • If someone is living with an abuser, their safety could be at risk if they are caught looking for help.

  • Young people may not have a private space to look for support.
