How can I help someone in a crisis?

We can help support anyone who is worried about the adult loved one in distress, whether or not they are seeking help.

A crisis does not discriminate: it affects everyone regardless of their psychological makeup or the coping mechanisms they’ve developed in their lives. In any case, a crisis causes significant distress, which manifests in as many ways as there are people.

Nevertheless, there are some key warning signs:

  • Stress, anxiety, panic attacks, distress, sadness;
  • Disturbing comments from the person in distress; suicidal thoughts;
  • Sudden change in behaviour;
  • Recurrence of symptoms related to a familiar clinical picture;


What should I expect when I call?
