Hate my apprenticeship and I’m depressed watch

    Basically I have just left school in June this year and I suffered major depression whilst at school. My happiest time was between June and August this year when I left as I didn’t have to see anyone again as I had such a bad time at school. Hence why I decided to do an apprenticeship so that I didn’t have to face everyone at college.

    I now have a travel consulting apprenticeship which I started at the beginning of September. I have some good and some bad days at work (mostly bad depending how I feel) I feel as soon as I’ve started working my depression has crept back up on me. I would love just to have a year or so to myself then start working. I have no idea how to express this to work or to my parents OR weather it’s even the right thing to do. Anyone have any suggestions?

    At work they aren’t really that caring. My boss is a bit big headed, only does like 20 hours a week. And at home I only have my parents but I hate telling them things like this especially because they are proud I got the job at 16 and also they think I enjoy it.

    Honestly, it wont get better if you just sit on it, if i were you id stay in the apprenticeship if the career prospects are good - if you leave then want to go on an apprenticeship they may not hire you as you left your previous one - training apprentices is very expensive. My parents aren't understanding on things like this but id go tell them depending on how bad your depression is you might want to see a professional. If the work is making you depressed you might want to leave and look for a new one

    What makes it worse is at work there is girls who started in 2016 so 2 years older than me and aren’t yet qualified themselves (still trainees) and telling me what to do all the time. Constantly putting me down etc but I’m sure they will have been the same at some point. I actually cried in work the other week.

    Bro i dont know what to say, this company called Kooth came around my school they offer online counselling services (they are free). That way you dont need to tell your parents that you feel like ****. there website is Kooth.com. They have counsellors on until 10pm. Go there tell them everything and ask for advice.
    I wish you all the best
