Need help with… your mental health
Speak to… a healthcare professional
Whether mental health issues runs in your family or not, everyone is susceptible. Depression, in particular, is very common, and if you become depressed dealing with it is the only thing you can do to help. Ignoring it and hoping it will go away simply isn’t enough. The very least you should do is explore your options and challenge your existing perceptions. Learn the facts from a scientific point of view; how depression affects the brain’s ability to function normally. Explore different treatment options. Even if you are dead-set against the idea of anti-depression medication, it is wise to know exactly why you don’t want to take it. You might believe something that a healthcare professional is able to show is just a stigma, and not based in reality. Finally, be sure to let at least one family member or friend into your struggle. The support of a loved one will make all the difference.
Need help with…. your workload
Speak to… your boss
If you are a hardworking and committed member of your team, this has loads of benefits. You are probably well respected, and may even be on track for promotions and pay rises! But this is often a double-edged sword. So while your hard work might get you these benefits, it may also mean you get more work than your fair share. If your boss thinks you can handle it, they might start to pile it on you. This might be fine at first, but if you start to approach your breaking point, be sure to say something. Otherwise, your overall quality of work will inevitably start to slip. Your boss might pleasantly surprise you. They may offer a pay rise, or perhaps a Personal Assistant. Or if it is a piece of technology that is slowing you down, you might be able to get it replaced. Slow computers can have a big impact on how efficiently we can work. It could just be that you need to take yours to the IT department for a software clean up. But if you don’t tell anyone about the issue, how can they help? However, if he or she remains unhelpful and refuses to understand, it may be time to move elsewhere. You deserve better than a job that doesn’t respect you!

Speak to… professional essay writers
If you have gone back to school as a mature student or are still studying, it can be very tricky. When you were a kid at school, it was the biggest thing in your life.

If you’ve returned to school to get your Masters, adapting to masters level writing can be challenging. Asking for help, be that from professional essay writers or elsewhere, could be wise. Also, in the same way that you’d speak to a boss about excessive workloads, let your lecturers know if you are struggling. As adults themselves, they will probably be pretty understanding. They might be able to offer extra tuition. Or in some cases, might be able to offer longer deadlines. Any help of this nature will take some of the pressure of you, so don’t think it isn’t worth asking. After all, if you don’t ask you don’t get!
