Take a gap year for mental health?Watch
I’m F 19, Currently studying a foundation degree course at college, and since my A levels, my mental health has taken a turn for the worst. I have bad depression and anxiety/social anxiety, which has stemmed from bad experiences which has left me with no real friends, a narcissistic father/bad family life, and stress from the pressures of work.
I am unsure whether to take a gap year or not, to maybe sort out my mental health for when I go to university. Or should I just go to university anyway, just so I can get away from my family life/narc father, as that makes me more depressed and anxious.
Also, I feel like my mental health is making me doubt if I will get to where I want to be in my career and I’m also speculating if I should go down a different route. But maybe that’s because I’m not in the right mindset right now..
Any advice would be appreciated thanks.
By the way, will you go to a top university? What do you major in?
