It's important to recognize the signs that suggest seeking professional help is necessary. Difficulty functioning at work, or school, or experiencing changes in appetite or sleep can indicate that something is affecting your ability to perform daily tasks, which could be due to underlying mental health problems.
Increased substance use can be a coping mechanism for underlying emotional or psychological issues, and can lead to addiction and other health problems. Additionally, thoughts of self-harm are a serious concern that should not be ignored, and it's essential to seek professional help if you are experiencing these types of thoughts.
