At any given time, any of us can experience a major crisis. Crisis moments -- from a sudden loss of a loved one to declining mental health or feeling suicidal -- can drastically affect our lives.

Crisis counselors are available to help you get through this time and find balance again. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs You Need a Crisis Intervention

Crisis counselors specialize in delivering immediate, short-term mental health care to help you overcome any mental crisis you are dealing with. Here are some signs that you need a crisis intervention:

  • You have had thoughts of harming yourself or someone else.
  • You are experiencing delusions.
  • You’ve stopped completing routine self-care functions.
  • You feel an unmanageable level of stress.
  • Your eating and sleeping habits have changed for the worse.
  • You are using drugs or alcohol in an attempt to heal.
  • You feel depressed, anxious, or angry.
  • You are overcome with grief.
  • You have completely withdrawn from the people and activities you used to enjoy.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms of a mental health crisis, a crisis intervention is in order. And if you’re not sure whether your concern qualifies as an actual crisis, it does - you define it. If you’re interested in how a crisis counselor can help, read the perspective of licensed therapist Veronica Welch about life in the middle of a crisis.
