If stress is impacting you, call a helpline in Australia for free, confidential help

Stress is the feeling of being under pressure. When stress is prolonged or you experience an extremely stressful event, it can deplete your coping resources, making it difficult to keep up with life's demands. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms of stress, there are 13 helplines in Australia you can reach for free, confidential support:

  • Sleep disturbances; sleeping excessively or not sleeping at all.
  • Difficulty concentrating and focusing.
  • Excessive sweating in the hands.
  • Dry mouth and trouble swallowing anything.
  • Being overly pessimistic or only focusing on the negative side of things.
  • Constantly worrying about something.
  • Having difficulty relaxing and unwinding.
  • Irritable, angry, and impatient.

When you're stressed out, it can feel like you're under immense pressure. Your emotions are heightened so you may be more short-tempered and irritable. You're also more likely to get upset over seemingly small things. It's normal to feel overwhelmed and that things are beyond your control.

It's not always easy to admit that you need extra support, but everyone needs help sometimes. That's why there are hotlines available in Australia who help people who are overwhelmed with stress. It can be a huge relief to share your feelings with someone who cares and wants to understand what you're going through.

For free and confidential support with stress, consider contacting a hotline in Australia today.
