Some people may be able to tell that someone else is suffering from a mental health problem because of the way they behave. They might notice unusual behavior like frequent irritability, poor sleep patterns, or other changes in their mood or attitude.

For this reason, a medical doctor or psychologist must be consulted before drawing a diagnosis of a mental health problem.
