Is school or work affecting you emotionally? Find support through a free helpline in Scotland.

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 1 hotlines in Scotland where you can ask for help if you:

  • Don’t trust your peers, teachers or colleagues and feel victimised by their words and actions.
  • Pretend that you are sick, nauseous or hurt so that you can avoid attending.
  • Find certain tasks or skills difficult or impossible to master, when others find them easy.
  • Often absentee yourself for headaches, flu, injuries and stomach bugs that you don’t really have.
  • Feel self conscious and somehow inferior to others around you at school or work.
  • Have trouble understanding tasks, assignments and lessons, and feel left behind or inadequate.
  • Use drugs, alcohol or self-harm to distract yourself from your problems at school or work.
  • Feel incredibly self-conscious about social or professional interactions with others.

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 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 Scotland for free and confidential support today.
