When Should I Seek Help for Stress?

You should seek help in dealing with stress when you experience any of the following:

  • Marked decline in work/school performance.
  • Excess anxiety.
  • Alcohol or drug abuse.
  • Inability to cope with demands of daily life.
  • Irrational fears.
  • Obsessive preoccupation with food and fear of becoming obese with no relationship to actual body weight.
  • Significant change in sleeping or eating habits.
  • Persistent physical ailments and complaints.
  • Suicidal thoughts or urge to hurt others.
  • Self-mutilation, self-destructive or dangerous behavior.
  • Sustained, withdrawn mood or antisocial behavior.
  • Decline or marked indifference in interpersonal relationships.

Where Do I Go to Get Help for Stress?

Your personal doctor. He or she can determine if stress is due to an anxiety disorder, a medical condition, or both and can refer you to a mental health professional, if necessary.

If an emergency, call a crisis hotline, or go to the nearest emergency room.
