    I have a friend who worries about literally everything far too much. Even just answering a question wrong in class and any embarrassment that might happen. It's gotten to the point where it's he only thing she can think about and is starting to affect her physical health. Like she frequently has black outs and panic attacks. She is unwilling to go for medical help because she doesn't want it to be widely known. If anyone has any suggestions of how I could help I would really appreciate it thank you.

    I think you need to just be there for them and maybe talk to your head of year ( if you have one) or one of the teachers, probably someone they know well because it seems like it will be hard for them to talk about.

    alternatively, you could recommend something anonymous online, like childline, which they can say all the things worrying them without feeling like they are being judged.

    Thanks, I think she is unwilling to go for help at school because then people might find out which is definitely something she doesn't want. I might recommend an online service to her thank you
