Know The 5 Signs

The 5 Signs

The five signs of suffering are withdrawal, agitation, hopelessness, decline in personal care, and change in personality. Someone may exhibit one or more signs. If you recognize that someone in your life is suffering, now what? You connect, you reach out, inspire hope, and you offer help. Show compassion and caring and a willingness to find a solution when the person may not have the will or drive to help him or herself. There are many resources in our communities. It may take more than one offer, and you may need to reach out to others who share your concern about the person who is suffering.
