Most people feel anxious at times and have their ups and downs. It's natural for a person's mood to change or anxiety level to rise during stressful or difficult times. But if you or a loved one is experiencing feelings of anxiety or depression, or suffer mood swings that are so severe and overwhelming that they interfere with your personal relationships, job responsibilities, and daily functioning, you may be suffering from depression, an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, or a combination of all of three.
The National Institute of Mental health reports that more than 25% of the American adult population experiences some kind of anxiety, depression, or other emotional difficulty every year. The good news is that they're treatable.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, not adjusting well, or can’t cope with what is going on in your life, you may benefit from counseling.
The simple act of asking for help is a sign of self-awareness and insight. This means if you have the awareness to seek support when times get rough, then you are more likely to benefit from professional counseling.
