When to Seek Help:
  •   When you are not able to manage symptoms/behaviors on your own
  •   When symptoms/behaviors are impairing your daily functioning
  •   When family or friends express concern about you
  •   When symptoms/behaviors are persistent and enduring and/or becoming more frequent/intense
  •   When you are just generally feeling poorly and/or functioning below your potential
How to Cope:
  •   Consult with a  professional (i.e. a physician, therapist and/or other healthcare provider)
  •   Increase support from family and friends who are stable, healthy and invested in your well-being
  •   Identify and become more involved in positive/productive activities & behaviors you find enjoyable
  •   Fresh air & physical movement (this doesn't have to be anything extreme... A short walk or simply sitting outdoors can do wonders)
  •   Identify and become involved in creative outlets (music, art, writing, photography, etc.)
  •   Breathe deeply into your belly when distressed, at least 10 breaths (this sounds elementary, but breathing is often the first thing that stops under duress ... (deep breaths can slow down the body's physiological response to stress, which then can reduce the psychological response).
