Are you worried about your own or someone else's mood, behaviour or ability to cope?
Have you experienced or observed:
- Difficulties with memory and concentration
- Feeling emotionally numb, or frequently wanting to cry
- Overwork, restlessness, hyperactivity, or finding it hard to do anything at all
- Difficulty sleeping, or difficulty staying awake
- Loss of appetite, comfort-eating, or preoccupation with food and weight
- Talking too much or too fast, or not talking at all
- Feeling constantly fearful, or experiencing panic-attacks
- Difficulty relating to your environment and/or to other people
- Feelings of unreality, or heightened reality
- Hearing voices, or seeing or feeling things others appear not to hear/see/feel
- Persistent worrying thoughts or ideas
- Suicidal thoughts
Any one of these problems on its own does not necessarily indicate mental illness, but it is always best to seek help or advice.
