One of the most pressing health issues of our time, mental health, is addressed in RadioHub’s featured podcast of the month, If You Don’t Mind by Madelaine Cherrington.

Did you know that you may have a mental health issue and not know about it?
6 Indicators that Point to a Mental Illness
The World Health Organisation estimates that 350 million people around the world is suffering from a mental health issue but not all of these people know that it is time for them to reach out for help. Here are 6 signs that you need to be on the lookout for, which may point to a mental health issue:
1. Unexplainable physical aches
Are you experiencing an upset stomach, an aching muscle, a soreness or generalised feelings of weakness that you can’t seem to explain? Our physical body tries to warn us of mental health issues through these ailments.
2. Lack of enjoyment and motivation
Called anhedonia, when you seem unable to find pleasure or enjoyment from people, experiences or events that you previously found enjoyable, is also a sign pointing to a mental health issue.
3. Lowered productivity
Dragging yourself to work, missing deadlines, forgetting appointments or poorer quality of outputs are some examples of lowered productivity. Performance in the workplace often suffers when a person is experiencing mental health issues.
4. Withdrawal from social life
Personal relationships with family, friends and loved ones often suffer when there is a mental health issue. Feelings of disconnection to current relationships and preference to avoid rather than engage in new relationships are also signs.
5. Irritable and combative
When you can’t even let the little things slide, pick petty fights or feel a lack of empathy, these can also be signs of a mental health issue. More and more things bother you, your patience is always stretched and less compassion for others are also indicators of a decline in mental health.
6. Erratic sleeping patterns
One of the first and most obvious signs when a person is experiencing mental health issues are changes in sleep. Difficulty falling asleep or waking up in the middle of your sleep are also signs. Nightmares, often with recurring themes, also point out to mental health issues.
