Common Signs of a Dual Diagnosis

When you have a mental health disorder, your thoughts may feel cloudy, confused, or unfocused. Substance abuse does nothing to help this mental fogginess.

It can be difficult to identify or narrow down the problem without professional help. This roadblock tempts many individuals to sweep their problems under the rug rather than facing them head-on.

As a result, each problem will only get worse as time goes on. If you think that you may have a mental health disorder but are unsure, we can help with a free mental health assessment.

In the meantime, here are some of the most common signs of mental illness to look out for:

  • Periods of sadness or feeling isolated for more than two weeks at a time
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Taking risks or engaging in other uncharacteristic activities and behaviors
  • Fear without understanding why
  • Drastic or otherwise troubling mood shifts
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
