Understanding Agitation

Riding the Roller Coaster: What is Agitation?

Agitation can be likened to an untamed, stormy sea. It encompasses feelings of restlessness, a sense of disquiet, and an intense urge to move around. It’s an uncomfortable state of mental tension that can leave one feeling distressed, anxious, and in some cases, even aggressive.

Causes and Catalysts: Why Some are More Agitated than Others

Agitation can spring from a wide variety of sources such as stress, substance use, medication side effects, or physical conditions. It's also a common feature of various mental health disorders, including depression, mood disorder, ADHD and schizophrenia.

Signs to Spot: Recognizing Agitation Before It Takes Over

Early signs of agitation include restlessness, pacing, hand wringing, excessive talking, and difficulty concentrating. Recognizing these signs early can make a significant difference in managing the condition effectively.
