Talking about your mental health struggles is always the best approach.  Bottling up emotions and isolating yourself will only make things worse. There is help available for all kinds of mental health problems.

Some you have to pay for, and some is free. 

Here is a list of options for you to explore.  Some lines operate 24/7 others do not, so please check out their webpages for availability and whatever you do, don’t lose hope.
