Signs and symptoms of behavior illness can come in both subtle and not so subtle ways. The important aspect is to pay attention and take some form of action.
Important indicators that should not be discounted are changes in behavior and moods, changes in relationships, or changes in work performance.
Similar to physical illness, sometimes behavioral illnesses can heal themselves with time, but sometimes time alone cannot cure the individual. Also, like physical illness, inattention can make conditions worse.
If you have concerns about yourself or someone you know please take action, become educated, and seek assistance if appropriate. There are evidenced based practices, both medical and or therapeutic to help manage or correct all forms of behavior disorders.
