When we hear the word “health,” most people think of their physical health.There are physical signs and symptoms we immediately take notice of and seek professional medical care to address. However, when it comes to mental health, many people are hesitant to ask for help.
A variety of symptoms may indicate it is time to address your mental health, including irritability or persistent anger, sadness, feeling anxious, sleeping too much or too little, frequently feeling overwhelmed, engaging in impulsive behaviors, changes in performance at school/work/home, and experiencing trauma.
Everyone experiences a mental health symptom at some point in their life.
Mental Health symptoms can occur at any age and in people from all cultural backgrounds.
It is important to ask questions, seek help, and most importantly, help those who may be experiencing issues regarding their mental health understand that they are not alone.
