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
  • Self-harming
  • 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.
