How to Recognise Anxiety in Others

When someone is struggling, they may find it extremely difficult to speak up which can become very lonely for them. However, they may be showing other signs that may indicate feelings of anxiousness in which you can help support them.

Everyone responds to anxiety differently, while some may be extremely emotional, others may lack emotion completely. So, learning the different signs is important in the next steps to helping the people around you get back on track.

Here are some signs to look out for:

· Being easily angered and frustrated

· Confusion

· Memory loss

· Dissociating

· Getting upset easily

· Not enjoying the things that they normally enjoy

· Changes in appetite

· Fatigued

· Shaking

· Wounds on skin from nervous picking

· Skin flare-ups (acne, eczema)

· Temperature changes (getting too hot or too cold easily)

· Headaches

· Stomach aches

· Muscle and joint pain

· Restlessness

· Breathing fast

· Distancing themselves from others

You may feel a lot of pressure when someone you love is struggling with anxiety, so it is important to remember your limits. If you notice these signs but are finding it difficult yourself, contact someone who can help such as a teacher, doctor, or parent.

A simple, ‘are you okay?’ or ‘I am here for you’ is enough… simple but goes a long way.
