I Just Feel So Lost. Can You Help Me?
TeenHealthFX is sorry to hear about you are going through.
The pandemic has had an impact on everyone on some level. Some people may have been severely impacted emotionally while others just a little. The key here is that you are not alone and there is no right or wrong answer. The best thing to do is to ask the right people for help which is why we are glad you asked your question.
Unfortunately, TeenHealth cannot diagnose over the internet, but we have a few suggestions and resources that can! We strongly recommend that you reach out to a parent or trusted adult, teacher, school counselor, or school nurse as soon as possible. They can provide you with the necessary support and help you get the professional help that you need. You will also be given realistic options rather than being told to “stop it” by friends who may not understand that you are really struggling.
If you feel you need immediate assistance, call 911 or if you live in Northern New Jersey you can call the Atlantic Behavioral Health ACCESS Center at 1-888-247-1400. Nationally, you can text the Crisis Text Line by Texting HOME to 741741 to connect with a Crisis Counselor. We also have a Mental Health resource page with additional hotlines and websites that may be helpful.
