    Hi, I am currently in year 13 and have been diagnosed with anxiety. It has got a lot worse this year and I have panic attacks at school pretty much every day. Camhs has essentially told me my anxiety isn't severe enough to get help, and my GP won't refer me again despite getting a lot worse this year. So I am wondering, is it worth telling school with only a few months left? What support did your school give you for mental health issues? (I already do exams in a separate room because of my anxiety, but this went through my exams officer not head of year)

    Thank you so much!

    I know someone who did, they told our year head, she was an absolute gem about it, and we managed to sort most of the problems through planning and knowing what was going on when and where via the year head

    i would definitely recommend telling your school. I was in a similar position last year and i'm so glad i told them as they will probably have some sort of system or something in place that can help you.
