Changes in a loved one’s behavior can sometimes be signs of mental distress. You might notice these changes even if the person struggling with mental illness does not.
If you notice any of these changes in your family member or friend, something may be wrong:
- Changes in eating and sleeping habits
- Mood swings
- More fighting or yelling than usual
- Not wanting to spend time with friends or do things they usually do
- Having trouble at work or school or with completing everyday tasks
- Substance abuse
