Know the Warning Signs


Trying to tell the difference between what expected behaviors are and what might be the signs 

of a mental illness isn't always easy. 


There's no easy test that can let someone know if there is mental illness or if actions and thoughts might be typical behaviors of a person or the result of a physical illness.

Each illness has its own symptoms, but common 

signs of mental illness in adults and 

adolescents can include the following:

Signs and Symptoms 

  • Excessive worrying or fear
  • Feeling excessively sad or low
  • Confused thinking or problems concentrating and learning
  • Prolonged or strong feelings of irritability or anger
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Inability to perceive changes in one’s own feelings, behavior or personality
  • Inability to carry out daily activities or handle daily problems and stress

Mental Health Disorders 

  • Difficulties understanding or relating to other people
  • Changes in sleeping habits or feeling tired and low energy
  • Changes in eating habits such as increased hunger or lack of appetite
  • Multiple physical ailments without obvious causes (such as headaches, stomach aches, vague and ongoing “aches and pains”)
  • An intense fear of weight gain or concern with appearance 

 Mental Illness

  • Extreme mood changes, including uncontrollable “highs” or feelings of euphoria
  • Avoiding friends and social activities
  • Difficulty perceiving reality (delusions or hallucinations, in which a person experiences and senses things that don't exist in objective reality)
  • Thinking about suicide or homicide
  • Abuse of substances like alcohol or drugs
