 Adult Mental Health

Have you noticed a change in a loved one or friend? Maybe they’ve seemed sad or irritable for a long period of time. Maybe they’ve withdrawn from social activities and things they used to love doing. Maybe they’ve had a dramatic change in their sleeping or eating habits. 

No matter the change, you can always reach out to Your Life Iowa to help get the needed support for your friend or family member. 

When helping those we care about, it’s important to care for your own mental health needs too. See our tips for self-care here.
