  1. Feelings of sadness, fatigue, loss of motivation, crying spells, helplessness, isolation which have been ongoing for more than two weeks
  2. Changes in behavior, personality, sleeping/eating habits
  3. Difficulty concentrating
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Intense worries, fears, agitation
  6. Psychosomatic complaints such as racing heart, physical discomfort, shortness of breath

Help is available. Mental health and physical health go hand in hand in maintaining quality of life. We must all work together to overcome the stereotypes and fears that prevent us from seeking help.
