It may be difficult to know when a loved one is struggling with their mental health. However, there are some signs may help you pick up if someone is struggling.
Signs Someone May Be Struggling with Their Mental Wellbeing
Appearing Quiet or Withdrawn
Someone that is typically engaged in conversation or activities then is more withdrawn from the situation may be experiencing lower levels of mental wellbeing. Feelings of worry, sadness, stress or anxiety can make someone act quieter or more withdrawn than usual.
Reluctancy to do Things They Enjoy
A range of mental health concerns can cause individuals to be less enthused by, or reluctant to participate in activities they usually enjoy.
Changes in Sleep, Energy and Appetite
Rapid or severe changes in these behaviours can be a result of poor mental wellbeing. While these may be hard to spot, these changes can be harmful to one’s physical and mental health.
What to Do if You are Concerned
If you are concerned about someone’s mental wellbeing, it is important to check in on them. You should voice your concerns with empathy and a sense of support. It is best to encourage them to seek professional help and talk about their wellbeing if they feel comfortable.
