    I'm so angry and upset and confused right now and nothing I do is calming me down. Today the work experience tutor told me that I need a placement by the end of the week and I can't think straight. I've contacted over 30 companies to try and get work experience for my college course and had no luck. I've been searching since October 2016. My part time job relates directly to my course and they still say it isn't allowed, even if I work unpaid. I've emailed and talked to this college so many times about how stressed and nervous i've been about this and every time they've told me it doesn't matter.

    I can't pass without this placement. If I don't pass i'm not getting into university, and I know that without university my mental health is going to go right back to how it was. I'll be lost, stuck with no future and i'll have a brain so full of suicidal thoughts and stress it will explode. I don't know what to do. I'm so desperate now, i've set all my hopes on university and I can't lose it now.

    I just don't know what to do anymore.

    Not sure if this is helpful,

    but ask your subject teachers about work placement in specific areas or your form tutor if you have one. Maybe they have contacts that may help.

    Look through your friends and family connections, and look online as well

    About calming down....

    Use headspace, digipill or calm (on the app store) to take a few mins out to calm yourself
    Do yoga or do something you enjoy to ease your nerves
    Scream into your pillow
    make yourself a hot drink and focus your attention to your 5senses - what you see, smell, touch etc....


    hope this helps
