    Good on you for reaching out for help - an important first step! It sounds like you have a lot going on, and you may need to talk with someone who can help you think about what support you might need. A couple of options - you can go to your GP and ask for a referral to a psychologist - most of the cost for this will be covered by Medicare. Because you are under 25, there is a terrific service called Headspace that provides counselling and mental health support for young people free of charge (this is government funded). You can either find the one that is closest to you by visiting their website https://www.headspace.org.au, or you can chat to somone at E-Headspace either online or by phone - https://eheadspace.org.au

    Reaching out is a wonderful first step, good on you! It sounds like you have many things going on for you right now, you’re feeling stressed and in need of support for yourself which appears to be challenging for you while arguing with your family. Anger can often manifest from underlying depression and it seems you are still trying to accept the loss of someone dear. You certainly have a lot to cope with. I would suggest that you seek support from a Counsellor/psychologist (psychologists can offer Medicare rebates) to help you work through your loss and the ways in which it has affected you. If you are reluctant to walk into an office setting to seek support, there are many online services available to help. When seeking, online support be sure the professional’s credentials are legitimate, you want someone qualified. You also need to 'click' with your therapist and feel comfortable with them. I hope this has helped you in some way. I complement your strength in reaching out the way that you have.
