Million of Americans are effected by mental health disorders. Yet only a fraction of people receive treatment. Too often symptoms escalate to reach a crisis point.
Some examples of a mental health crisis include depression, trauma, eating disorders, alcohol or substance abuse, self injury, and suicidal thoughts. Common signs of an emotional crisis include:
- Neglect of personal hygiene
- Change in eating and sleeping habits
- Declined performance at school/work
- Changes in mood
- Withdrawn from actives and relationships
Getting help can make all the difference. Don’t wait to address your concerns.
If you or a loved one has an immediate concern, go to your local emergency room or call #911.
Additional crisis and suicide hotlines are available to help, too.
