The signs and symptoms of mental health issues can vary widely in severity and frequency from person to person. That’s why it’s not always easy to determine if what you’re feeling is something situational that may pass on its own, or whether it’s something persistent that may require professional help.
It’s important to know that mental health issues do not need to be “serious” in order for you to reach out for support. Whatever you’re going through, your feelings and experiences are valid and you deserve support. But if you are starting to feel concerned about what you are noticing about your mood or behavior, there are warning signs to watch out for—and effective ways to seek help for whatever signs you’re seeing. Practicing emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions and our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies will also be discussed.
