When to Seek Professional Help

The following is a list of symptoms and indicators of grief. While many of these are normal, persistent symptoms need to be taken seriously. If you find that any of these are true for you, we suggest you consider seeking professional help:

  • If you are always feeling exhausted, anxious, suicidal, depressed, helpless, experiencing uncontrollable anger, insomnia or stressed-out
  • If you are withdrawing from family and friends, work, school, etc.
  • If you are becoming dependent on drugs or alcohol
  • If you have little desire to get involved in activities you once enjoyed
