I'm too distressed to fill this in but I need help. I have a 15 year old daughter with anxiety, depression and PTSD who rarely attends school.

Hi @Zinnia098 

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling distressed, it sounds like you are dealing with a lot in regards to your daughter. It's really great that you've reached out for some support.


You've mentioned that your daughter has anxiety, depression and PTSD - is she receiving any support from a GP or psychologist to help with this?


You've also mentioned that she struggles to go to school, is this due to her mental health concerns or because of something else?


I'm also wondering how you're supporting yourself during this time, do you have family or friends you can talk to? If you would like to chat to a counsellor, SANE has a helpline or if you feel like you need more immediate support, Lifeline is available 24/7.
