Some of the things that can signal your need for an acute level of care can include overwhelming feelings of depression or fear, and you may be to the point of hurting yourself or others. Here are some questions you can ask yourself or family member:
Does your depression or anxiety prevent you from functioning at home, work or school?
Are you unable to sleep, eat or take care of personal hygiene because your stress level is high?
Is your alcohol, drug or medication use out of control?
Are you having hallucinations or do you think people are plotting against or trying to hurt you?
Are you suicidal?
Are others telling you that they are scared or concerned for you?
If you are in crisis or suicidal, please call the Maine Crisis Hotline at 1-888-568-1112.
