Let me start by saying that I, for one, appreciate your wishing to understand someone else's mental state. I've been suffering with Major Depression for 6 years now and with t…he help of medication (which I avoided for a very long time) I've finally been able to make some progress in my life. The best thing to do is simply be their friend. In all actuality, (unless of course you're a psyciatrist) there's not much someone can do. Just be there for them. Help them make psych appointments (alot of depressed people will avoid social contact. Calling people on the phone may not appeal to them) or hang out with them when they're feeling blue. Let them know you love and care for them, often . It's honestly one of the best things you can do. Try not to focus so much on things you can do to 'fix' them.; you'll only let yourself down. I mean, face it, if they're mentally unstable there's nothing you can do in your own power to change the configuration of their brain. I'll leave you with these last couple things you can do. Do what you can to make sure that this person gets medical care. Encourage your friend or loved one to stick with his or her therapy or medication. Offer to go with him or her to appointments as support. Also, be supportive and patient. Listen to what the he or she has to say. I hope you have found something in this to be helpful. Keep it up. If someone you know is thinking about suicide, don't ignore it. Do whatever you can to get help for that person. Get in touch with his or her doctor or therapist.
If your wife is mentally unstable then you need to realize that she has no place in a stable marriage. My wife was mentally unstable and popped xanax's and drank everyday. She… eventually went to rehab and found a man and left me for him. Was I upset? Yes, very much so. Did I want her back? Yes. But now after realizing how much emotional pain an unstable woman can cause you, it was for the best. Mentally unstable people also tend to be very selfish, and pathological liars to hide their problems. I didn't need it and neither do you.

when you're starting to get mood swings, be on your toes. it's only going downhill from there. watch out for depression, panic attacks and numbness.
deppending on how severe he/she is. but they may be analysed, but are usually charged like anyone else would, unless they were registered mentally ill
it depens on if you are "mentaly unstable" or like if your balence is off when it usually is not.
Encourage them to get help. If you know they have a condition or a specific mental illness, you can read up on it and try to find ways to help them deal. (Do NOT try to psycho…analyze them, or play therapist; that's not what friendships are for.) If you think they may harm themselves or others, contact the authorities; better safe than sorry, in such a case.
Anyone can get divorced and divorce anyone. mental health is nothing to do with it.
they sort of go hand in hand. but usually mentally unstable is someone who actually suffers from a life long mental illness. but emotionally unstable can just last a periiod o…f time and be cause by a tragic event
People can be mentally unstable in many ways and its not always a bad thing. If you're in a school for example then be his/hers friend as much as needed. No one really likes t…o be left alone or isolated, that creates more paranoia etc.. Of course if he asks for strange things, then you shouldn't help him with those.. Like if he calls someday and asks for your personal information, so that he can get his medicine from the apothecary, because he lost his own papers etc. Then use caution. But if he is a nice person, who may be suffering from social phobia or something like that (you never know), then I bet he appreciates you a lot if he feels comfortable around you. If you like being with him, then its good, if you don't like him, then take distance. If he talks strange stuff to you just say "I'm not interested!".
It mainly depends on the child's actual condition and how old they are.
Unnatural sleep patterns or sleep loss can be a sign. The urge to hurt someone, including theirselves, could also be a possible sign. Daydreaming and rambling on for hours mig…ht be a hint of mental stability. Sorry, I do not know very much information. After all, I'm only eleven.
Can you reach out for help? It will be okay, just reach out for help.
Almost all are not. They are cool under pressure, calculating, cunning. This doesn't mean they are normal, they are not. Any human that can kill another human for no reason bu…t their own twisted pleasure is not normal. They are preditors and they must be clear-headed and alert. Most won't drink or take drugs to excess, especially right before or during the hunt and kill. There are exceptions of course, but as a general rule these killers are not unstable. They would be caught long before the body count gets too high.
As an actor, Gary Entin is playing parts. Of his personal life, only a professionally trained person might know. Answer How to gauge what level of Psychopath People migh…t be or What is a Bully/Sociopath/Psychopath? I would like to think that I have come up with a gauge of 1-6 to answer this question. When a person is being bad to someone when they are calling a person names/bully etc. they are a level.1. When they get someone to help them pick on someone else they are a level.2 and they recruit a level 1or 2. Like attracts like! When they get 1-5 people to help them pick on someone they are a level.3 and the others under them are level 1-2. Like attracts like! When they are able to get 5-10 people to pick on someone they are a level.4 and the others under them will be a 1-2. At this same time a level 4 will start to find things that will upset you. To try to make you angry by Picking on your friends, relative, pet to see your response. In a way they will play with you because you have become their tool. They will also justify themselves by saying freedom of speech. But freedom of speech is only when it is against the Government, because there are laws of harassment and liable. Like attracts like! And when they are able to get more than 10 people to pick on someone they are a level.5 and the others under them are a level 1-2-3-4. But for the people who are under a level 5 a 5 is trying to get them to move up a level. Also at this time they will step back and let others rise to take any pressure off them so if and when they get caught it will not look like they are the leader. Like attracts like! And if they are able to build up to killing someone or getting someone to commit suicide they are a level.6. Like attracts like! But during this time if that bully/sociopath/psychopath are able to find others of his level 1-2-3-4-5 or 6 they become even stronger. Because they have no empathy for the person or the people they are bullying. Another way they will prove that they are a psychopath is they will justify what they have been doing to that person and back each other up for abusing that person/people. So now here is the answer to the question you might be looking for? Are you a psychopath? If you do not pick on anyone to demean or abuse them and or you do not join in with the bully/sociopath/psychopathic crowd than you are not a Bully/Sociopath/Psychopath. You might be just scared to speak up when there are things happening that are wrong around you. You see if a person/bully/sociopath/psychopath is able to talk someone else into picking on a person for the fun of it with them they have power. And in a way getting someone to become an outcast gives them the power over everyone in that group of friends they have. You see the person that is being picked on has made a different choice compared to others in that group or their religion is different or their color is different than the rest of their group etc. You see like attracts like and if the bully/sociopath/psychopath thinks he can get others to join him he/she is empowered. One way they do this is to be verbally funny. By demeaning that person or by beating someone down so bad that they either wish to die or actually do die by committing suicide. All this time giving momentum to the group that he/she has developed! So now he has this feeling of power over others more and more. But here is the real kicker if that person leaves that they are picking on the psychopath will either follow them or start on someone else to keep the feeling of empowerment alive and growing. Do you know of anyone like this? When the bubble finally breaks in this world that they live in, they will disperse quickly. Like the saying "the rats know when to leave the sinking ship"! They do not want the school, community or the world to see them for what they are because they care about what they look like to others outside their group. But only after they try to justify what they have done. The way they have been able to gain such power and influence over others with the bully/ sociopath/psychopathic behavior is because no one has spoken up to them in the community. No one knows what is actually going on in their group/community/world or the group/community/world looks the other way so they do not get picked on. It is a way to keep everyone in control. This has been a question that I have had since school taking history and watching others in my life. In wondering how could that person gain such control over someone/people and why do they do that. Bullies/Sociopaths/Psychopaths want to fit in with the crowd. But only when it is their world! Now how do you combat being bullied? By taking ownership of your life! One possible way is to write a letter in your local newspaper saying what has been happening to you with no names being said. Only the name of the place that it is happening at! I am not saying for anyone to do this. It is one thing that I have thought of. If you have a problem and you do not know of a solution and or you are not willing to do the solution where no one is being injured or hurt then you are the problem.
