Asking for help when it comes to mental health can be a struggle for many. Reaching out and talking with a professional can help break the cycle of isolation that anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues can create and start to build the support you need.

At Valley Counseling Services, we are always working to make sure you have the right tools and treatments to live a healthy, well-balanced life. Almost all mental health problems can be treated or at least lessened in their severity. Getting help early can prevent what could become a lifelong mental illness.

Here are five warning signs of mental illness to watch for:

  • Long-lasting sadness or irritability
  • Extremely high and low moods
  • Excessive fear, worry, or anxiety
