Being in debt, hating your toxic job, losing your job, and being unemployed all have significant impacts on your mental health and well-being.

If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or are even a little concerned about your mental health, please seek help. Help can come in many forms. There are numerous free and affordable supports available to you – online, over the phone, and in person.

The following websites and organizations offer resources to help you cope, personal stories so you don’t feel alone, exercises to try, screening tools, treatment options, and professionals to talk to.

You do not have to struggle on your own!

Please note that some professional services and phone numbers are only available in certain states/provinces or countries. The information and resources on these websites, however, are generally available to everyone.
