Study burnout
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

I feel sick every time I think about going back to school next week. This is my senior year in high school, and I will take the college entrance exam next year. I will also have to take IELTS exam next month and many other tests. I feel that I am bearing too much pressure and expectations from myself and my family. I've been studying nonstop for the past 3 months this summer vacation and now I'm experiencing extremely severe burnout. I feel exhausted and overwhelmed both physically and mentally, completely unmotivated to study, constantly feeling guilty and worried about the future. I've tried everything to relax and rest but it doesn't make me feel any better. I don't have anyone to talk about my feelings. I tried to tell some close people about my condition but they didn't seem to take it very seriously. I'm not getting any help at all, and I don't know what to do. If you have experienced any similar situations, please kindly give me some advice on how to deal with it! 😭
