When You Should Get Help For Mental Health Issues

ID-10076342Many people who have mental health issues don’t realize that they do or are in denial. As a result, they do not get the help they need. They settle for a lesser quality of life—not feeling happy, not having good relationships, not enjoying life. This is unfortunate because no one has to live that way.

Some signs you might want to seek help include:

·  Feeling like you are on an emotional roller coaster

·  Use of recreational drugs or alcohol to assuage your troubles

·  Having suicidal thoughts or feeling hopeless

·  Feeling anxious or worrying all the time
