It can be very hard to know if you need mental health help because it’s easy to convince yourself that you don’t when in reality you need it. If you are finding various changes in your social life, like becoming more asocial or other social withdrawals, you could very well need help. If the things that were rewarding and fun to you are now uninteresting and unfulfilling, that is a big sign of depression and you should get help.
- If you are a more social person and you are starting to exhibit social withdrawal.
- The things that used to be fun for you are no longer fun and exciting.
- Sleeplessness and other irregularities in your sleeping and eating habits.
“Preventive health care is the right way to go. It is about foreseeing the problem before it arrives and addressing it on time. There are many health challenges (even terminal ones) that are better treated when people practice preventive healthcare. This means that things do not have to get out of hand before you see the health experts.”
