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  • You have completely withdrawn from the people and activities you used to enjoy.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.
