WHEN SHOULD I ASK FOR HELP?
When life hurts, we’re often able to find help by ourselves or with help from family and friends. However, there are times when we need to get help from a counselor or doctor. Here are a few indicators that it might be time to seek professional help:
Struggle is preventing you from functioning in a healthy way or is significantly impacting your quality of life.
It’s difficult to resolve an issue through your own ways of coping.
Your current coping mechanisms (e.g., overuse of alcohol or drugs) are potentially destructive.
You are overwhelmed to the point where negative emotions are dominating the way you feel.
You are feeling hopeless and/or losing interest in things that used to bring you joy.
Negative thoughts are preventing you from thinking clearly and making healthy decisions.
You’re experiencing heightened social conflict or a desire for increased social withdrawal that is difficult to control.
Note that thoughts of self-harm or the desire to harm others require immediate attention, including telling family and friends that care about you and contacting a suicide prevention center and/or other resources listed below. If you feel like you are in immediate danger or are a danger to others, go to a behavioral health hospital (options below) for a free assessment or seek medical attention by dialing 911.
