Ive been in sixth form college for about 2 months now, and my mental health has taken a massive toll and i've been having panic and anxiety attacks nearly everyday because of the amount of stress and pressure that is put on me. I am now considering a break from education and start work, and next year go back and do sixth form again. My year 11 was mentally exhausting for many personal reasons and because of that i was having the same issues i am having now, with the panic and anxiety attacks, but somehow this year is worse. I feel like a gap year can really be benifitial for my physical and mental health, but i don't want to be seen as a failure who has dropped out of college by my family. Any advise, especially from people who has taken a gap year between secondary and sixth form / college will be greatly appreciated!
