Feelings of anxiety, anger, depression, low self-esteem, and stress are a normal part of being human and can affect anyone. Sometimes these feelings are temporary and can be eased by rest, relaxation, exercise, good nutrition, and support from others. At other times, feelings of anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns cannot be easily managed and become overwhelming. When this happens and you find it hard to function, you may want to seek help from professionals.
