Every person experiences emotional stress to a more or less severe extent, for example if
- one experiences violence or even war
- a relative suffers from violence or an accident
- one is affected by a serious illness
- one has to live in an existence-threatening situation for a long time
- one has an unresolvable conflict in one's family
Great mental stress can turn into an emotional crisis. People in an emotional crisis
experience very intense feelings: despair, hopelessness
anxiety or depression, even suicidal thoughts.
