Someone is ACTING OVERLY WORRIED OR FEARFUL
what YOU can do
Let them know that you notice their anxiety and that you want to help them feel better.
Discover the specific scenarios that make them fearful or worried. Do not minimize their fears and worries, even if it seems irrational.
Help identify things that help the individual relax.
Urge them to do perform daily activities even when anxious. Avoiding will be a momentary relief, but in the long run will make anxiety worse.
Strategize with the individual how they will use their calming techniques and what help they might need.
Medical or Emergency Care
A clinic or emergency healthcare provider is able to evaluate and determine the appropriate level of care. The patient will go through a medical screening process so medical providers can determine the best treatment based on the patient’s needs. This may include referral to a mental health professional or hospitalization.
