Are you finding days at school or work stressful or difficult? Get free help from a hotline in Northern Ireland.

School and work are considered foundations in life, and both are difficult to avoid. For some, the thought of attending on a daily basis can seem like a nightmare, seriously impacting on mental health and happiness.There are 2 helplines in Northern Ireland. It might be time to reach for help if you:

  • Have begun to ‘self-medicate’ with drugs or alcohol at or after school or work.
  • Don’t trust your peers, teachers or colleagues and feel victimised by their words and actions.
  • Struggle to follow lessons or tasks that those around you appear to find easy.
  • Avoid interacting or working on tasks by withdrawing, sleeping or hiding in the rest room.
  • Feel excessively tired, depressed, hopeless, withdrawn, or consider turning to drugs or alcohol.
  • Have difficulty following lessons or instructions, and feel unable to focus.
  • Have considered hurting yourself or others to end your daily troubles at work or school.
  • Try to absentee yourself from class work or school by faking certain symptoms or events.

Difficulties at school or work can have a domino effect. Specific issues such as pressure from teachers or managers, undiagnosed learning disabilities, poor vision or hearing, bullying and social anxiety can end up impacting every aspect of your daily experience at school or work – but you are not alone.

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 Northern Ireland for free and confidential support today.
