People can sometimes be reluctant to seek professional help. This may be due to perceptions of ‘stigma’ surrounding mental illness, uncertainty of who to see or thinking that help is not really warranted. However, it is important to realise that most people report feeling overwhelmed at some point in their lives …one could even say that this is just a normal part of life! Fortunately, people often report feelings of relief from seeking help and find themselves thinking more optimistically about their situation as they begin to uncover new avenues.
In some circumstances, self-help tools (e.g. books, online information) or talking to somebody close, can be of great value. Other times, face-to-face contact with a qualified professional is needed to make better sense of the situation and the difficulties being experienced. This is especially true if problems are beginning to interfere with your normal everyday activities and it is becoming difficult to cope. If this is happening, and especially if you have begun to lose hope, it is very important to seek help. Please contact Katherine, your local GP or view the Links page for further help.
