currently, i am a high achieving gcse student. i have a passion for sciences and languages and hope to study chem, biol and french for a levels next year.

i am unfortunately struggling at the moment with bad mental health, following my sexual assault last year. i am also in classes with my sexual assaulter and experience daily panic attacks.

do things get better during a levels, especially if the evil people leave?

just checking, so i can prepare myself mentally for next year.

take care

I'm diagnosed with SAD and I realized that after a bunch of kids left, I felt a bit better. I can say that surrounding yourself with your friends also helps a lot. I'm not a clinical psychologist so I won't tell you that your panic attacks will stop, but I believe that you'll feel much better once that person is gone.

My honest suggestion is that you should partake in therapy. Personally, I feel like understanding why I developed my abnormality helped with my ability to cope with it. Trauma can lead to unwanted coping mechanisms that, although help now, will be dysfunctional after you graduate; if you feel like you need it, therapy would be pretty beneficial for the short and long term

wishing you all the best

Does the school know or have you told anyone?
I would suggest speaking to certain people and possibly moving classes or seeking to get that person moved.

If that person leaves then at least they wont be there as a daily reminder. It will still take you not to become a prisoner of your experience and start to devise a straegy to contain and control any negative effects, whilst focusing on your future.
