Recognizing Early Warning Signs of Mental Illnesses

mental health awarenessSevere mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder rarely emerge out of the blue. Instead, family, friends, teachers, co workers, or the individuals themselves start to notice that something is not quite right gradually.


Warning signs:

Problems with concentration, memory, or logical thought and speech that you haven’t experienced in the past

Heightened sensitivity to sights, sounds, or smells as well as an overwhelming feeling of avoidance of over-stimulating situations
