Worried about someone else?
Are you worried about someone else?
One in three people experience mental health difficulties in one year.
Although mental health difficulties is a very common thing, it is very normal to be concerned or unsure of how to approach this. There are many symptoms that can be noticed in those suffering from mental health difficulties or having thoughts of suicide, these can be:
- Being withdrawn from others and wanting to be left alone.
- Detachment from reality, paranoia or hallucinations.
- Talking about suicide (making statements such as "I am going to kill myself", "I wish I was dead).
- Saying goodbye to others as though they are not going to see them again.
- Giving away personal possessions without any explanation.
- Having sporadic mood swings - being very happy and then being very low.
- Previous suicide attempts
- Changes in behaviour - acting recklessly or without thinking.
