Get Help Dealing with Stress
Financial struggles can put a strain on your mental health. Stress about job security, paying the bills, putting food on the table, and making ends meet for your family can build over time to unhealthy levels.
This stress can lead to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and more.
If you notice signs of increasing stress, like excessive fatigue, apathy or increased irritability, you can take steps to manage your stress levels.
- Try to keep things in perspective and recognize the good things you have going on in your life.
- Participate in physical activity to blow off steam and release extra stress.
- Develop new skills that could help you land a new job.
However, if you or someone you know seems desperate and may be considering suicide or other forms of self harm, seek help immediately by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
