While it’s natural to feel blue, stressed or anxious now and then, it’s advised to book an appointment online with a mental health expert when such thoughts, behaviours or emotions start to interfere with your ability to function. They can offer you better clarity on your situation, identify the underlying reasons, and recommend a treatment plan if needed.

1. Mood swings and fatigue
2. Loss of appetite
3. Insomnia (inability to sleep)
4. Muscle tension
5. Headaches
6. Intense or persistent anxiety
7. Panic attacks
8. Lack of interest in things you once enjoyed doing
9. Excessive smoking, substance use and alcohol consumption
10. Suicidal thoughts
An online mental health consultation can defined as a confidential, safe space with an expert who’s trained to help you understand your thoughts and feelings around difficult situations, without judgement or bias. Knowing why you feel the way you do can help you make positive and proactive decisions that support your well-being.
You also become better at managing interpersonal relationships and how to communicate your feelings with your loved ones, friends and colleagues. And, you can access online mental consultation from the comfort of your home, during hours convenient for you.
