Are you finding days at school or work stressful or difficult? Get free help from a hotline in Massachusetts, United States.

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 9 helplins in Massachusetts, United States to reach out to for free support if you:

  • Constantly feel tired, lazy, sad or depressed, wishing you weren’t at work or school.
  • Have considered hurting yourself or others to end your daily troubles at work or school.
  • Often absentee yourself for headaches, flu, injuries and stomach bugs that you don’t really have.
  • Feel overwhelmed by lessons, tasks and activities and unable to handle the stress.
  • Feel excessively tired, depressed, hopeless, withdrawn, or consider turning to drugs or alcohol.
  • Have trouble understanding tasks, assignments and lessons, and feel left behind or inadequate.
  • Constantly feel tired, withdrawn and depressed, wishing you could be anywhere but at work or school.
  • Experience intense shyness, anxiety and low self-esteem when interacting on tasks 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.

Distress at school and work should never get in the way of your ability to learn, perform, interact or thrive. You have the potential to succeed, but you need support. If your concerns and negative feelings persist for weeks, months or longer, it might be time to reach out to a volunteer or counselor at a helpline in Massachusetts, United States for support.
