These are complex problems that require professional help. They are not problems you should try to treat on your own. It’s important to ask for help.

Mental health professionals won’t have a negative reaction toward your symptoms. They are trained to deal with these kinds of problems. They are aware that these kinds of problems exist and know how to treat them. You have nothing to fear by telling them about your symptoms. They can help you.

Ask your parents to take you to a mental health professional. You can also for help from a trusted faculty member or the school guidance counselor. They can assist you in seeking professional treatment.

If you feel that you might harm yourself or someone else, then it is important to seek emergency help. This can involve a mental health crisis team, if one is available in your community, or going to the hospital. Mental health professionals can protect you from harming yourself or other people. Medications and other treatments can effectively improve your symptoms, but only if you’re willing to ask for help. Asking for professional help is the single best way to handle this situation. Please take care.
