Mental Illness; Checklist

Mental illness

Is someone you know showing signs of suffering from Mental Illness?

Everyone is different, however their are some clear warning signs that exist, and people should be aware and have the ability to identify them. You can use this Mental State checklist to monitor someone who you may suspect to have some  mental illness issues. You can identify and record changes in that persons behaviour or how they may be thinking.  

Please keep in mind that this just because someone may be experiencing or exhibiting some of the things on this list does not necessarily mean that the individual is suffering from a mental illness.  This list should be used as a gauge and relative to the persons surroundings and experiences.  However if you do feel that one too many of these things on the list are checked off we would urge that you consider approaching him/her to seek professional opinion or help.

Fact vs Fictions on Suicidal thoughts and behaviours

Resilient Focus is here to help!

It’s much easier to believe that individuals who experience suicidal thoughts and behaviours come from a dysfunctional home or family and have a long history with neglect and abuse, however this is not always the case. While these factors may increase the risk of suicidal behaviours it is extremely important to note that no one is exempt from experiencing these feelings; it can happen to anyone. When people are overwhelmed with life, stress, mental health problems or mental illness suicidal thoughts and behaviours may seem like the only way to cope. Suicidal feelings can occur when people feel disconnected from other people & the world or when someone feels helpless and hopeless about their current situation ever improving. Resilience Focus Counselling & Consulting is here to help! Life is not a race but a marathon and we are here to support you through that Journey. Let’s conquer your fears and hardships together!
