Do you dread the thought of going to school or work? Contact a free hotline in United States for support.

We often hear that school and work are among our greatest responsibilities in life. So, when we struggle to get through the day’s tasks, activities, or social and professional interactions, it’s easy to feel like we’ve failed. There are 18 helplins in United States to reach out to for free support if you:

  • Pretend to be sick, hurt or busy to avoid attending classes, school or work.
  • Try to absentee yourself from class work or school by faking certain symptoms or events.
  • Find certain tasks or skills difficult or impossible to master, when others find them easy.
  • Feel isolated, withdrawn and constantly tired at school or work.
  • Have intense school or work related anxiety, stress, fear or worry.
  • Feel stressed and overwhelmed by the quantity or content of homework, tasks, assignments and projects.
  • Have difficulty following lessons or instructions, and feel unable to focus.
  • Are unable to understand, follow or complete the days lessons, tasks or activities.

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.

When troubled thoughts about school or work get in the way of your potential, it might be time to access support. Receiving support doesn't make you weak – it simply means you're human. Consider contacting a helpline in United States for free and confidential support today.
