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).
