Constant uncertainty and changes in lockdown situations have caused a decrease in many people’s mental wellbeing. Our Director, Jodie Brenton and head psychologist Mary Magalotti, work to make mental health information and help widely accessible. It is important to identify when you or a loved one is in need for mental health care. Here at Life Resolutions, we provide care for anyone experiencing mental health concerns.
Here Are Some Of The Common Symptoms You May Be Feeling Include:
- Feeling flat, sad, overwhelmed, disconnected and irritable
- Low energy and constantly feeling fatigued
- Low motivation or lack of interest
- Difficulty performing daily tasks
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling hopeless and helpless
- Withdrawing from the people around you
- Significant changes in appetite
- Reduced libido
- Excessive thoughts and worries
- Feeling restless and panicky
- Feeling scared about the future
- Denying reality
- Physical symptoms such as difficulty breathing, increased heart rate and stomach problems
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is first important to understand that this is a normal and human reaction and you are not alone. These symptoms are signs that you may need mental health support.
