Signs of a Mental Health Crisis

A mental health crisis can display in a variety of ways. There is no one indicator that a person is experiencing a mental health emergency, but here some signs to look for. The person may be:

  • Unable to complete daily tasks like getting dressed, brushing teeth, bathing, etc.
  • Verbally saying, writing or insinuating that they’d like to kill themselves and/or talking about death
  • Withdrawing from friends, family and their typical social situations
  • Showing impulsive or reckless behavior, being aggressive
  • Having dramatic shifts in mood, sleeping or eating patterns

When you suspect a crisis, you’ll need to decide who calls to help. If the person is an immediate danger to themselves or someone else, do not hesitate to call 911 and let them know you are with someone experiencing a mental health crisis. If the person is not in immediate danger you can reach out to the individual’s therapist, doctor or psychiatrist if they have one. They will be able to provide advice and help with crisis services. You can also go to the local mental health center or emergency room to receive an assessment.
