When Should You Get Professional Help for Stress? Find Out!

Did you know that the mind and body are closely linked together? Physical illness can lead to psychological effects like:

  • demoralization
  • anxiety
  • depression

Also, psychological stress can lead to physical symptoms like:

  • chest pain
  • headaches
  • bowel changes
  • flare-ups of eczema
  • flare-ups of asthma
  • even heart disease

A well mind helps to maintain physical health. Yet, it is normal to feel under stress at times in life. When should you seek professional help from a counselor or doctor? Consider getting help if your psychological stress is:

  • prolonged
  • very distressing
  • disabling (affects relationships, work, study)
  • you have limited support
  • is causing other issues (gambling, drinking excessively, physical illness) 
  • you feel suicidal

Help is only a call away.
