    How do I know if I need help?

    “I haven’t been feeling the same mentally...”

    Have you or others around you noticed a change in your behavior? Have emotional, mental, or substance use problems begun to significantly impact your daily life? You might be exhibiting signs of a mental illness or have a need for substance abuse treatment.

    The following symptoms suggest the presence of onset mental illness and may need immediate attention. If you are experiencing any of these, please contact us at (352) 291-5555 or visit our emergency services department which is open 24/7 at our 60th Ave location:

    • Confusion and/or disorientation
    • Hallucinations
    • Significant changes of mood – anxiety, depression, etc.
    • Restless, agitated and disorganized behavior
    • Significant impairment in self-care
    • Destructive or high risk behavior
    • Emergences of self-harming activities or suicidal thoughts

    Mental illnesses are real medical conditions and are more common than most people think.
