Help and Support

If you often become overwhelmed by stress, these feelings could start to be a problem for you. Consider talking to a professional if:

  • Your distress leads to dangerous thoughts or behaviour, such as considering suicide or physically harming your body. If you are having suicidal thoughts call the Samaritans on 116 123. If you have an emergency medical situation, call 999
  • Your distress lasts for a long time (weeks, months or years)
  • Your distress seems out of proportion to your problems
  • You feel distressed frequently and you are not sure why
  • You continue feeling bad even when good things happen
  • You find that distress interferes with your ability to live life the way you want to live it
  • You feel a need to use alcohol or drugs in order to feel better
