Get the Support You Need Right Now
Unlike many other illnesses of the body, there is an unwanted stigma associated with mental illness. Even our culture was for long insensitive to the mentally ill and tended to make light of their challenge. Words like crazy are loosely used to shame those who are essentially just sick people needing attention.
Mental illnesses range from mild anxiety and depression to more serious issues like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, dementia, and psychosis. But in order for a minor ailment to not flare up into something serious, it is important to address it early. This is because some illnesses can be degenerative, some require medication, some in-patient institutional care, etc. Counseling is certainly advised if you begin to have doubts about consistent worries plaguing your student’s mind. You could be nipping a potentially chronic problem in the bud.
