When to Seek Help?

Friday, June 24, 2016 12:53 PM | Deleted user

All of us in the course of our lives go through a series of normal and expected challenges. These challenges have possible pitfalls, and many individuals and families need support and guidance to cope. Events such as a new baby in the family, troubled adolescent, or coping with an aging parent will affect how people function. We may also face other problems and crises such as unemployment, a sudden or chronic illness, divorce, or a death in the family.

People facing these and other such problems can often benefit from the professional services provided by MFTs.

Some signals of distress are:

  • Overwhelming anxiety or fear
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sexual disturbances
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Excessive alcohol or drug use
  • Lack of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Excessive loss or increase in appetite
  • Excesive weight gain or loss

Seeking professional assistance is a courageous step and shows an awareness and a willingness to grow and change.
