Friends, relatives, and even just people I meet for the first time, ask me about the strange things they do and wonder if they’re crazy.

Generally, these questions are about behavior people don’t mind revealing. Anything more significant about our mental health, we often don’t want to share.

But, if you are doing or experiencing something that doesn’t allow you to live in a comfortable or sane way; if life has become unmanageable, lacks enjoyment or you lack hope for the future; if you don’t see a way to change or resolve, either the cause or the experience of the stress you feel and this has gone on for a while, get professional help.

The best support for anxiety and depression is psychotherapy.

It’s not for crazy people and it’s widely available.
