  • Extreme Mood Swings: Rapid shifts in mood or emotional states that disrupt daily life.
  • Social Withdrawal: Isolating oneself from friends and family, avoiding social activities, or feeling a sense of disconnection.
  • Changes in Sleep Patterns: Significant disruptions in sleep, whether it's insomnia or excessive sleeping.
  • Changes in Appetite or Weight: Sudden changes in eating habits leading to significant weight gain or loss.
  • Difficulty Concentrating: Struggling to focus, make decisions, or retain information.
  • Substance Use: Increasing reliance on substances like alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism.
  • Loss of Interest: Losing interest in activities that once brought joy or satisfaction.
  • Physical Symptoms: Unexplained physical ailments such as headaches, digestive issues, or fatigue.
  • Thoughts of Self-Harm or Suicide: Experiencing thoughts of self-harm or suicide requires immediate attention and support.
