We all experience less than optimal mental health now and then; whether that’s because of fear, sadness, stress, confusion, grief, or some other kind of mental distress.
Generally, someone might be struggling with their mental health if you notice a change in their thoughts, feelings or behaviours that is
- Intense (stronger and more persistent than usual ups and downs)
- Long-lasting (usually two weeks or more)
- Negatively affecting their daily routine, relationships or responsibilities
