 A lot of people worry about what's going on in their brains at one point in their life or another. We all deal with bad days, weeks, excessive stress in very different ways, and sometimes the result looks kind of scary when we take a step back. For some people these are signs of a serious mental health condition and for others they will resolve more easily, but anyone who finds themselves in a distressed state deserves a chance to talk to someone who will take all of their mental health concerns seriously. A lot of people worry about what's going on in their brains at one point in their life or another.

This wiki is a great resource to learn more about mental health and we absolutely want everyone to educate themselves about the topic, but if you're worried about your own emotions/​thoughts/​behaviors or those of a friend or family member, talking to a professional is the best way to assess how to move forward with resolving those concerns. You will also notice we mention talking //to// someone, and that usually implies some sort of mental health [[providers|treatment provider]] (e.g. a therapist).
