When is it time to seek professional help?

If you are wondering about whether to seek professional help, then seek it out. Needing assistance with stress or other emotional concerns is not a sign a weakness – quite the opposite! For many people, a discussion with their family doctor about how they are feeling emotionally as well as physically can help determine whether seeing a mental health professional is a good next step.

If your place of employment has an employee assistance program – then call and arrange to speak to a trained professional – it is free, confidential and can be very helpful.
