Are you experiencing difficulties at school or work? Get free, confidential support from a helpline in Switzerland today.

Persistent problems at school or work may leave you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, singled out or left behind. What’s worse, such challenges can be impossible to avoid, with daily exposure impacting your mental health and wellbeing. There are 3 hotlines in Switzerland where you can ask for help if you:

  • Often absentee yourself for headaches, flu, injuries and stomach bugs that you don’t really have.
  • Have trouble understanding tasks, assignments and lessons, and feel left behind or inadequate.
  • Feel isolated, withdrawn and constantly tired at school or work.
  • Constantly feel tired, lazy, sad or depressed, wishing you weren’t at work or school.
  • Use drugs, alcohol or self-harm to distract yourself from your problems at school or work.
  • Have difficulty following lessons or instructions, and feel unable to focus.
  • Have begun to ‘self-medicate’ with drugs or alcohol at or after school or work.
  • Feel so trapped and powerless about school or work that you consider suicide or self-harm.

Interacting with peers and colleagues can be challenging. You may have trouble expressing yourself, saying the right things, or fitting into groups, but you are not alone. Your challenges at school or work may also stem from pressure or heavy workloads, sensory impairment, learning disabilities, and more.

When such feelings persist for weeks, months or more, it may be time to reach for support. With the help of counselors or volunteers who understand how distress at school and work can impact on your wellbeing, you can find a meaningful path forward. Consider contacting a hotline in Switzerland for free, private help.
