Mental Health. Look Out For The People Around You.

[Mental Health. Look Out For The People Around You

We need to fight against the mental health stigma by talking about it publicly, learning more about the experience of mental illness and being conscious of the language we use to talk about mental illness
Let’s briefly list the early indicators of mental health challenges:
  • Dramatic sleep and appetite changes or decline in personal care
  • Rapid or dramatic shifts in emotions or depressed feelings
  • Recent social withdrawal and loss of interest in activities that were  previously enjoyed
  • Problems with concentration, memory or logical thought and speech that are hard to explain
  • Heightened sensitivity to sights, sounds, smells or touch; avoidance of over-stimulating situations
  • Apathy — Loss of initiative or desire to participate in any activity
  • A vague feeling of being disconnected from oneself or one’s surroundings;
  • Nervousness
  • Unusual behavior
One or two of these are not a problem but if you or someone you know is dealing with several of these concurrently then go ahead and get some help.
