Major Mood Changes
Notice if you are – or someone you know is – experiencing extreme changes in mood or behavior – feeling deeply irritable, unhappy, depressed or staying removed from friends and family.
Plunging poor grades in school. Withdrawn, antisocial behavior at work, home or in other activities – all are warning signs.
Excessive use of drugs, alcohol or other substances. Practice of dangerous, careless, violent and other risky behavior.
Extreme Lack of Focus
Look for problems with concentration and changes in energy level, appetite or sleep schedule.
Do you – someone you know – often say you feel hopeless or don’t want to be alive anymore?
Cutting and burning oneself are two examples of self-inflicted violence.
