May is the National Mental Health Month in the United States


May is the national mental health month in the United States ❤️  It's important to recognize when you need help with your mental health    An occasional bad day is to be expected, but when things that used to be easy become consistently a lot more difficult, something's going on. In addition to getting physical symptoms checked, you'll want to look at your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

👋  Common signs of mental health concerns:

👉  Isolation - You used to be really outgoing and positive, but lately, you want to spend most of your time home alone.

👉  Losing interest - You aren't as interested in things you used to like – food, music, hobbies, friends, work/school.

👉  Trouble focusing - You can't concentrate enough to follow conversations with friends.

👉  Short temper - You're easily irritated and keep lashing out at people you care about.

💡  Many people struggle with not feeling "sick enough" to seek help early on in their mental health journey. The average delay between symptom onset and treatment is 11 years - meaning a lot of people spend months or years facing mental health challenges before getting a diagnosis. It is never too early to seek treatment – if you want help for your mental health, you deserve to get it.
