Life can be tough at times.
Just like with Study Girl, emotions can sometimes become overwhelming and even lead to suicidal thoughts.
Although it can feel very intense, it's important to remember these feelings will pass.
Study girl chose to live, she'll be back soon.
At the link above, you’ll find a selection of VICE articles offering mental health support, which we hope will act as guidance, advice and simply a reminder: You are not alone.

A message from Study Girl:
Things really seemed to get on top of me
and everything started to feel out of control,
my future seemed completely hopeless.
I felt incredibly low and so alone,
enough to consider taking my own life...
But I chose to live. And I’m so glad I did.
It gave me the chance to talk about my feelings,
with people who care.
This gave me a whole new perspective,
it helped me discover why my life was worth living.
Something I couldn’t see when I was feeling low.
If you can identify with how I was feeling,
the important thing to do is talk.
Whatever you’re going through now,
There’s always someone there to listen and help you.
Things do change and move on.
You are not alone.
I’ll see you again soon,
Study Girl x
