Hi @Artgirl thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like it's been difficult for him to find a holiday job particularly living in a regional area with not as many opportunities. As @Taylor-RO mentioned earlier, has he seen or spoken to a health professional or counsellor regarding depression and social anxiety? Some other options could be contacting Kids Helpline or eHeadspace, both provide free counselling support via phone or webchat. They can also provide support for parents too or link to relevant services. Are there any community events or activities he could get involved in to meet new people? If he has anxiety around others, is there someone that he knows that could go with him?

We are not a counselling or crisis service and we can't guarantee you'll get a reply, so if you need to talk nowClick here for help
The current time is Tue, 3:10 AM

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
