Any advice for someone who is trying to work up the nerve to find another job but doesn't have any confidence or support to overcome their fears of being around people that I'm scared of even applying for work?

In my city, we have a non-profit organisation who specialise in job placement for people with disabilities. Depending on your level of social anxiety, it could be considered as a disability and make you admissible for help on the matter. It’s worth a shot.

Also, any private or government funded job placement organisation would have experience in helping unemployed citizen with mental health issues. They can help you explain to futur employer your time off work. They can help you practice enterviews. They can help you build your CV. And much more...

Hope that helps! Good luck with your search!

i agree with jazzmine84.....government funded courses can help mentally ill people like yourself get better at doing things like interviews, mixing, cv's, and career exploration.....i did one of those courses and i thought it was great. I have social anxiety too. The course lasted about 6 months but it bulit up my confidence and i met people who i related to.....enquire about it and give it a go
