You’re not alone. According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll, nearly half of U.S. adults reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over COVID-19.
Positive lifestyle changes—like eating healthy, getting exercise, avoiding self-medicating with alcohol or drugs, and practicing relaxation techniques—may help you feel better. But sometimes, that’s not enough.
These early warning signs indicate you might need help:
- Loss of interest in things you’ve always enjoyed
- Appetite or weight changes
- Sleep changes
- Anger or irritability
- Feeling overwhelmed by worry, sadness, or loneliness
- Loss of energy
- Difficulty focusing and making decisions
- Unexplained aches and pains
If any of this sounds like what you’re going through, we encourage you to talk with a therapist. Sometimes a few sessions are all you need to get back to feeling like yourself again.
