Jasmine shares how she managed her anxiety and depression while she was in high school, through tools and help including ReachOut.

It was a massive release for me to find [ReachOut] and find that [depression and anxiety] was normal and it happens to other people, people like me.

Some things that helped Jasmine when she was dealing with depression and anxiety in high school include:

  • friends and teachers she trusted reaching out to her and asking whether she was okay
  • reading ReachOut resources about depression and anxiety, which helped her understand what she was going through
  • realising what she was going through is normal and happens to so many young people
  • getting on the ReachOut Forums and connecting with other young people.

What can I do now?
