What we know is that the experience of one person and their perception of a mental health crisis are as unique and individual as the person and for what one person may feel is manageable may be for another feel completely devastating or over-powering. 


A mental health crisis may take a number of forms including, but not limited to, anxiety or panic attacks, psychotic experiences such as hallucinations, feelings of paranoia, relapses of a serious mental health illness or thoughts of suicide or acts of self harm.
