I’ve been struggling for a while. No matter what I try, I still feel overwhelmed, lonely, and burnt out. I’m having a hard time managing everything that needs to be done. I don’t care about my goals, hobbies, and passions like I used to. Other people are starting to notice and have expressed concern for me. I need more support to get through this.

What does that feel like?

  • Nothing that I’m trying is working.
  • I don’t care about anything anymore.
  • I can’t trust anyone to help me through this.
  • I’m so angry all the time.
  • I’m not capable of getting the help I need.
  • I don’t see the point in trying.

What does that look like?

  • Having or receiving a mental health diagnosis.
  • Neglecting school, work, and other responsibilities.
  • Decreased class attendance and lower academic performance.
  • Disconnecting from friends and family.
  • Struggling with basic needs (eating, sleeping, hygiene).
  • Increased reliance on alcohol or drugs.
  • Disordered eating patterns.
  • Considering or engaging in self-harming behaviors.

How can I start feeling better?
