When should I seek help immediately?

If you find yourself starting to feel like you will never get better and there is no point in trying, that you start engaging in things that you would never normally do such as putting yourself in risky situations (such as drinking excessively, taking too many prescribed medications, taking illegal substances etc), start harming yourself or start thinking that the only way to escape these difficult feelings is to escape life itself then please seek help from your G.P. or specialist practitioner as soon as possible.
