Feeling anxious about attending school or work? Contact a hotline in United Kingdom for support.

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 9 helplines in United Kingdom. It might be time to reach for 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.

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 Kingdom for free and confidential support today.
