    I think it will take only half an hour to realize this thing, not more than that. What he/she need to do is- sit alone in the evening time at a peaceful place and then think on the activities and behavior of his own. He/she will come to realize if he need to seek help or not or everything is fine.

    when you go through highs and lows so drastically it could harm you or someone else there is help support groups i know when you hear this mental health center it is scarey at first i thought so to but i am a bipolar believe me you are not crazy  there is help but waite because it can get worse if untreated with counciling and medicine  it does work i just went through this first hand just here in recently to point out how a mental illness can spiral out of hand it can cause you to have paranoid delusions and really belive they are true until act on them i lost my best friend  of 7 years because this went untreated because he refuses to believe he has a problem there is help as long as you want it and are willing to follow it through all the way and not give  up

    I think as soon as one realizes they are unable to focus on the task at hand.
    Once a person sees they can no longer function because they have no control over their thoughts or emotions it’s time to seek help.
    Some people are great at hiding their issues or faking things are fine but no one can hide from his or herself. People change when THEY want to change. Life is a personal journey and each of has "free will" to make our own decisions.

    It takes "energy" to make changes and it's difficult to muster it up especially if you are depressed. Very similar to assembling a 1000 piece puzzle you have to start off putting together the corners and working your way inward. Thinking in terms of the overall goal can seem very daunting. One must break things down.

    My wife has been going through this the last 3 years or so and she won't acknowledge that there is a problem when she doesn't take her tablets, but when she has been on them which she has to then she gets by without any paranoid delusions.

    So in answer to your question I believe it's up to the person to realise that they have a mental health problem, because I have said quite often that my wife needs to take her tablets regularly and she doesn't take much notice until we have to tell her over and over again. If we didn't get the help for her, she would have spiralled out of control herself....

    It took me years to finally realize, I think i was in denial to be honest. Other people could see i was unwell and in the end i finally seek help, but now i can work out early on when i am becoming unwell by things i do or say. I know my mood's very well and try to avoid the way i feel by writing or keeping myself busy. x
