Are you finding days at school or work stressful or difficult? Get free help from a hotline in British Columbia, Canada.

School and work are unavoidable. So, when interactions, activities and tasks start to seem overwhelming, it can impact every aspect of your life and mental health. Everyone is different, what comes easily to one may be challenging for another. In British Columbia, Canada, there are 15 helplines you can contact for confidential help if you:

  • Feel stressed and overwhelmed by the quantity or content of homework, tasks, assignments and projects.
  • Avoid interacting or working on tasks by withdrawing, sleeping or hiding in the rest room.
  • Experience intense shyness, anxiety and low self-esteem when interacting on tasks with others.
  • Feel so unhappy attending that you regularly find ways to avoid school, classes or work.
  • Don’t trust your peers, teachers or colleagues and feel victimised by their words and actions.
  • Feel self conscious and somehow inferior to others around you at school or work.
  • Pretend that you are sick, nauseous or hurt so that you can avoid attending.
  • Struggle to follow lessons or tasks that those around you appear to find easy.

From heavy workloads and pressure from teachers or management, to low confidence, undiagnosed learning disorders, and subnormal vision or hearing. So many issues can drive serious challenges at school or work. Your worries may even be social ones. Interactions that others find easy may feel more demanding for you.

Distress at school and work should never get in the way of your ability to learn, perform, interact or thrive. You have the potential to succeed, but you need support. If your concerns and negative feelings persist for weeks, months or longer, it might be time to reach out to a volunteer or counselor at a helpline in British Columbia, Canada for support.
