"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

  • Job interview on Friday: SO Nervous cause of my last expeirnce of interviews

    So i have a job interview on Fri 16th June at 1;30pm for a job in a nursery which I'm really nervous about.
    ​This is because when I had my job interview back in Oct 2015 time for my job in retail I fainted during the interview even after my teacher giving me some advice on how to deal with being nervous and how to be confident.
    ​anyone able to give me some advice to deal with these nerves

    Aah, interviews are too scary for my liking as well.

    Something that really helps me is making sure I take the time I need to articulate myself and think about things. Don't feel you need to rush through it or come up with an answer to their questions that very second. If it helps, take a breath, take a drink, ask them to repeat the question, etc.

    Another thing is remember the interviewers are often nervous too. If you've never been on an interview panel that might sound really odd, but there's just as much pressure on them to exude confidence and professionalism as there is for you. You're there to get to know each other; it's a chance for you to decide whether you want to work for them as much as it is for them to decide if they want to employ you.

    Also, and I know this is really cliché, but be yourself. Your character and personality can sell you just as much if not more than your qualifications and knowledge, so don't be afraid to show it.

    It's okay to be nervous, of course. Your interviewers know the pressure of interviews and they'll take that in to account.

    Best of luck and let us know how it goes!
