Signs of Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Signs of Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Stress, Anxiety and/or Depression affect many of us at some point in our lives. One of the first steps to getting support is to identify that there is a problem.

Signs of Stress, Anxiety and Depression may include:

  • changes in mood or behaviour
  • disturbed sleep patterns
  • loss of appetite or binge eating
  • tearfulness
  • irritability
  • loss of libido
  • loss of confidence
  • lack of concentration
  • frequent negative thoughts
  • fearfulness
  • social withdrawal

Sometimes there are clear triggers for these difficulties and at other times they appear to “come out of the blue” and it is difficult to understand why we are feeling like this when objectively everything in our lives seems fine. Either way the impact of these difficulties can be extremely debilitating.
