Know the Signs of Mental Illness

Mental health conditions can show up in many different ways. There is no single definition of what individuals living with mental illness experience or what behaviors their friends or families should look for.

However, there are some common signs that may suggest somebody is experiencing a mental health issue – especially if the behavior is new, has increased, or seems related to a painful event, loss or change. If someone you know is showing signs of a mental health issue, reach out – tell them how much they mean to you, ask them how they are feeling and offer your support.
