COntinue to SPEAK OUT about symptoms you think you might be having.. You might want to seek out a mental health professional. You can contact 211, or local agencies like Alpert Jewish Family and Chilren's Service for referrals to counselors and psychiatrists.
Lighthouse Recovery Institue is a comprehensive all women's Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Program located in Delray Beach, Florida. Check out our website for information on how to help your daughter: www.lighthouserecoveryinstitute.com.
If you contact the local mental health association or 211, they will provide you with referrals on a sliding scale.
Unfortunately, very often, people with depression feel that THAT is shameful, and choose to never seek help when they are at their lowest point.
That's a really great question. too often, people assume that as people age, they become depressed. As such, symptoms of depression in seniors are often negated, minimized, or overlooked entirely. Your next place to turn might be to a psychiatrist, specifically familiar with working with older adults.
That is a good question and a difficult one. When adult children have reached legal age of adulthood, they have to request services for themselves. In situations like this, it can be very beneficial for the parent to seek help and support regarding the next steps to take.
211 is a great resource to utilize, they are available 24/7 to provide you with local resources. There are local agencies, such as the Alpert Jewish Family Service that have extensive counseling and psychiatry services.
Excellent point. Families who have experienced the loss of a loved one through suicide could greatly benefit from support.
There is a strong correlation between mental health issues and substance abuse. In regards to comedians or celebrities, there are lots of financial resources for these people to purchase substances. Additionally, celebrities are in the public eye and their issues are more widely known.
Ordinary citizens can learn specific tips by taking a mental health first aid class. These classes are offered by the Alpert Jewish Family and Children's Service. It is never offensive to approach someone out of concern.
Please call 211 and get a referral (there are people answering the phones 24 hours daily) or speak to your primary care doctor ASAP.
That's probably one of the biggest reasons why people do not seek mental health treatment.
1 out of 4 people suffer from mental illness. Any concerning changes in behavior noticed in a loved one can qualify as a reason to seek out professional help.
The 211 hotline is a great resource if you feel you have a friend who is struggling with depression and needs counseling resources in the area.
It is best to ask the friend if they are experiencing any symptoms of depression. The best thing you can do is be honest and open if you are concerned about your friend. A few uncomfortable questions could potentially save a life.
Some of the signs to look for in a person who might be suffering from depression are as follows: change in appetite, loss of interest in pleasurable activities, withdrawal from social activities, and changes in sleep patterns.
