Deciding to Get Help

Seeking psychiatric treatment or counseling for yourself or a loved one is a difficult decision. Most people struggle for weeks or months wanting to make sure they are doing the right thing for themselves, their family or other loved ones. They want to avoid the cold isolated, non-caring environment once depicted as typical of psychiatric hospitals. Above all, they want to see themselves or their loved one get better as a result of their treatment. The following four questions can help you decide if treatment is the best choice:
1.Has the problem been getting worse over time?
2.Is it likely the problem will get better by itself?
3.Does the problem interfere with the person's ability to handle everyday life and responsibilities?
4.Is anyone in danger of being hurt either physically or emotionally if the problem continues? If the answer to #4 is YES, then you should seek help immediately.
