9 Signs Your Mental Health Needs To Be Prioritised, According To Psychologist Dr Tripti Choudhary Vaid

Most people may have considered visiting a psychologist at some point in their lives. But not every one of them ends up making an appointment with a mental health professional. Every individual goes through life stressors and it is important to understand when one needs to reach out for support for their mental health. In collaboration with The Channel 46, Dr Tripti Choudhary Vaid, Child, Adolescent & Young Adult Psychologist, offers advice on symptoms that indicate that you need help from a mental health professional.

1. When Your Emotions Are All Over The Place Or ‘Dysregulated’

When one’s emotional reaction is way too severe in comparison to the event that may have occurred, or one cries very easily or when sadness becomes a constant emotion you feel, it may require professional intervention to help you cope with it.

2. When Your Appetite Or Sleep Undergo Changes

Sleep disturbances such as sleeping too little or too much may indicate mental health concerns. Also, changes in appetite (eating too little or eating too much) may also indicate a need for working on your mental health.

3. Going Through A Traumatic Event

If you are undergoing a traumatic event, a situation that you are unable to cope with or find hard to cope with may be reason enough to visit a psychologist.

4. Loss Of Interest In Daily Activities

When you lose interest in doing things that give you pleasure, it may warrant a psychologist’s opinion.
