One of the most important parts of self-care and growth is knowing when you need help. For example, for physical health, you may consult a personal trainer or dietician to help you reach your goals. The same goes for mental health. When you are having a particularly hard time mentally/emotionally, or are going through a bad situation, a therapist or psychiatrist can be used to help you get through it. So do you know when it’s time to get some help? Keep reading for some tips on knowing when it’s time to talk to someone.

Life isn’t easy for anyone, and there are often that we don’t know if or how we can make it through. This can cause a lot of problems that lead to depression, anxiety, stress, isolation, self-medication, and much more. It is important to be aware of these feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, so you can get the help you need.

These feelings can include:

  • Suicidal or self-harming thoughts
  • Seeking relief through alcohol or other substances
  • Isolating yourself from loved ones
  • Pulling your hairs out (trichotillomania)
  • Development of eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Being unable to function the way you normally would
  • Physical manifestations of mental/emotional distress like constant headaches, stomach aches, heart palpitations, blurred vision, dizziness, and more
  • Hallucinations
  • Body dysmorphia (inability to see your body or appearance as it truly is)
  • Feeling like you need help

These are some of the most common signs of knowing when it’s time to talk to someone. If you ever start to feel or do any of these things, SEEK HELP IMMEDIATELY. Find a therapist, doctor, psychiatrist, or psychologist that you feel comfortable with, and that can help you and support you as you work through the problems you face. It is also important to speak with the people close to you that you trust so that they can become part of your support system as well. It is OKAY to need help. All you have to do is ask.
