Mental Health

It's normal to feel stressed or anxious now and then. But it's time to call for help if emotional issues persist for a significant period of time and interfere with your life, your job, or your personal relationships.

With all the mental health resources and effective treatments available these days, you don't need to suffer and wonder what's wrong. Education and awareness have done much to erase the stigma once attached to mental illness. Still, many people don't seek help for mental health needs.

Mental conditions are real, and can be life-threatening, but they're also common and very treatable. How do you know you need help? As with many physical conditions, change is the key. If you have a marked and persistent change in personality, mood, or eating or sleeping habits, that's a sign something may be going on.

Symptoms to look for

These are other warning signs:

  • Feeling unable to cope with your day-to-day problems, work assignments or usual household activities

  • Being overwhelmed by a deep sense of sadness, hopelessness or helplessness

  • Having extreme mood swings, from high or hyper to down in the dumps

  • Abusing alcohol or drugs

  • Getting very angry or acting violently

  • Having thoughts about suicide or hurting someone else

  • Having a plan of how you would commit suicide

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's better to get treatment sooner than later. These are warning signs that you definitely need help.
