How to Recognize the Signs of Mental Health Issues?
Learning how to identify the early signs of mental health issues can potentially decrease their severity. Formal treatment can help individuals manage these issues as they pursue a healthy future.
Mental health issues can include a wide range of conditions, such as mood disorders and changes in thinking patterns and/or behavior. Some examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and addictive behaviors.
Attempting to tell the difference between normal, expected behaviors and possible early signs of mental health problems are not always easy. There is usually no precise way to test if an individual is suffering from a problem related to their mental health. Mental health issues and mental illnesses can make people miserable and cause problems in their daily lives. In most cases, signs of these issues are subtle, but can usually be managed with therapies.
It is usually family, friends, teachers, or the individual themselves who will notice small, progressive changes in behaviors, feelings, or thoughts before the illness appears in full. Learning about the early signs of mental health issues and early intervention can potentially decrease the severity of mental illness. In some cases, it may be possible to delay or prevent a major mental illness altogether.
