What is a mental health crisis?

A mental state crisis denotes a circumstance in which an individual’s actions, emotions, and behaviors may jeopardize their well-being or that of others. It can also place them at risk of being unable to attend to their own needs or function effectively within the community. Factors contributing to a mental health crisis encompass stress, interpersonal conflicts, exposure to trauma, and instances of violence. Environmental stressors such as those occurring in work or school settings can further contribute to the onset of a mental health crisis.

While individuals with diagnosed mental health conditions are at an elevated risk of experiencing a crisis, it is noteworthy that crises can manifest before a formal diagnosis is made. James Roberson, VP of Programs and Innovation at KVC Hospitals, emphasizes the physical nature of mental illness, stating, “We must acknowledge that mental illness is a physiological condition. When a crisis occurs, it is not a switch that can be easily turned off. The body and brain may act contrary to our intended goals and desires. Seeking professional assistance is the most secure approach to address the underlying medical aspects. Once addressed, various therapies and treatment services can be employed to prevent future crises and address the foundational issues.”

What does a crisis look like?

A mental health crisis may manifest in diverse ways, and there is no singular indicator that unequivocally signals an individual’s experience of a mental health emergency or potential suicidal ideation. However, several signs warrant consideration. These may include:

 

  • Impaired ability to carry out routine tasks such as dressing, personal hygiene, and bathing.

  • Expressing, in verbal or written form, a desire to end one’s life or discussing themes related to death.

  • Withdrawal from customary social interactions, including distancing oneself from friends, family, and typical social situations.

  • Displaying impulsive or reckless behavior, coupled with heightened aggression.

  • Experiencing pronounced fluctuations in mood, sleep patterns, or eating habits.

  • Coping with trauma or enduring the loss of a close individual.

Vigilance toward these indicators is imperative for early recognition and intervention during a mental health crisis
