If you’re having trouble dealing with stress, sadness, or loneliness, you’re not the only one. You may feel like everyone else is breezing through assignments and exams, making new best friends, and generally having the time of their lives, but studies have shown that more than half of students like you have experienced feelings of hopelessness or overwhelming anxiety.
So, you aren’t alone--and if you ask for help, you don’t have to feel like you are, either.

Choosing the right person to ask for help is important. You should choose someone who you trust will listen to you, will try to understand what you’re going through, and will be able to help you tell other people if you need to.
Sometimes, you may have to ask more than one person before you feel like you get the help you need. Don’t give up hope if the first person you talk to doesn’t know what to do.
There are lots of people at Vic, UofT, and in the community who you can trust to listen, understand, and help.
