    And I don't know why.

    I graduated not too long ago and now I have no friends to talk to, it is affecting my performance at work. Nothing I do is enjoyable anymore.

    I can't even tell my parents because they never understand any form of MH issues, i.e. they will tell me to "deal with it".

    I don't know what to do.

    I would definitely go and make an appointment with your GP. They will be able to prescribe you with medicine, provide resources and/or arrange for you to get counselling. In the meantime there are also a lot of helplines available. Here is a directory of different mental health helplines & websites - http://www.itv.com/thismorning/mental-health-helplines. There are some generic ones and ones more specific that may be able to help. If you don't feel up for phoning them a lot of them do have websites with forums, resources etc. Samaritans also has an email that you can use to get advice & support: [email protected]. Before your doctor's appointment *which you need to make* it might be useful to write down how you have been feeling, events that have affected your moods, any other mental health concerns you may have - this can ensure that you don't forget to say anything and that you cover all you think needs to be said.

    Prioritise your mental health above your work. You do not need to let your parents know you sought out mental health support from a doctor. When you speak to your doctor they may be able to provide you with some help in regards to what to do with work. If you feel comfortable, talk to your line manager (or whoever is in charge of this) about your mental health and see if there is any way you could get support from work.
