A north Iowa mental health expert advises watching for warning signs if a loved one or someone you know is struggling emotionally.
Mitchell County Regional Health Center’s Sheila Kobliska specializes in the mental health of older adults as the hospital’s Program Director for Senior Life Solutions. She says many of the warning signs a senior is having mental health issues also apply to people of all ages.
Kobliska adds other warning signs include changes in eating habits and loss of enjoyment of things one used to enjoy. She says if someone is struggling with their mental health, remind them they are not alone and there is help available.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Thursday is “Wear Green to Work Day” in support of the campaign.
