When should you get help with stress?

ANSWER

If you’re struggling with stress and don’t know how to cope, you may want to seek help from a specialist. Your primary care doctor can be a good starting point. She can help you figure out if the signs and symptoms you’re experiencing are from a medical issue or an anxiety disorder.

She can also refer you to a mental health expert and provide you with additional resources and tools.
