Psychologists says that no person is ever in a normal state, we all have some kind of disorder and we don’t want to talk about it. Almost every person has a secret obsession that they don’t want to talk about but the fact is that if you don’t talk about it, sooner or later it will become a dark fantasy for your and it can even kill you. There was an artist who fantasized about Mona Lisa and one day he jumped off a cliff saying that her smile was very grappling. Now, he must have been suffering of many disorders that now only he knows about it.
There are people who commit dangerous crimes and they face life long sentence in a mental facility and when their relatives are questioned, most of them say that they never saw of signs that showed any abnormality in them. And if even some do see change of behavior, it is hard for them to cope with that person even if it was their own child, parent or even sibling. But if you saw early signs of mental illness in your friend or in anyone, it would be best to take them to a therapist. This will help you to stay prepared as well.
If you see that your loved one has started to get really hyper and angry all of a sudden and lose temper at small things then you should ask them really politely that they should take a trip to the therapist. If you see your loved one has started to talk less or interact less for a very long time, then these are clear signs of prolong depression, in such circumstances, it is best to talk them even if they don’t respond to you. If you see that your loved one has started to cut off from all friends and people around them, this means that they are suffering from a mental illness and you should talk to them about it as fast as you can. If you see your loved one getting anxiety and panic attacks due to small daily problems then you need to cope with them by relaxing them by using different techniques like; taking deep breaths, counting from 1 to 10 backwards or giving them a stress ball.
