If you feel that you, or someone close to you is struggling, it’s important to take action and reach out for support, especially if you’ve been feeling this way for some time.

There’s no shame in acknowledging your feelings or concern, and opening up and sharing how you feel.

If you feel like your life situation is becoming unmanageable, it’s important to speak to someone you trust, reach out to a Doctor of therapist if you have one, or reach out to the free confidential support services listed below.

Ask someone you trust at work if your workplace provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) program. These are available for mental health, financial assistance or relationship advice and support. The earlier you reach out the easier things will be.

If your life is in danger, in Australia, call 000 immediately.
