Depression is an ugly monster that lurks in the back of the subconscious. You can’t always tell when your loved one is suffering from extreme bouts of depression because this disease doesn’t present any obvious symptoms. But, just like any other disease, it warrants treatment from professionals if it becomes too much for the individual to handle. Salt Lake Behavioral Health Hospital offers inpatient services for adults in and around the Salt Lake City, UT, area seeking to overcome their depression. 

Know When to Get Help

Although mental health is being talked about more openly, there’s still a stigma around seeking hospitalization for these types of issues. Most people think they can suffer through a couple of bad days, weeks, or months, just to find out there’s no end in sight. The truth is that depression gets worse the longer it goes untreated. It doesn’t only affect your mental and emotional health, but also your physical health, your relationships, your career, and more. 

Still, how do you know when it’s the right time to seek inpatient treatment for depression? When depression becomes bad enough to affect your daily life, you shouldn’t avoid professional help any longer. An inpatient mental health facility can offer you the treatment you need to get better if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • You have thoughts of self-harm or suicide 
  • Your sleeping and eating patterns have worsened
  • You turn to substances as a coping mechanism
  • You’ve lost interest in pursuing your favorite hobbies or maintaining your relationships
  • You engage in self-harm
  • You’re a danger to yourself or others
