Psych: To be sure see a mental health professional but if it helps we all sometimes have temporary psych issues.

Too vague: It would be hard to imagine a more vague question. As humans, we all have psychological challenges, and none of us fully know our own hearts and minds. There is no sharp line between mental health ; illness; it is a matter of degree. If emotional problems interfere with functioning (in work, relationships, etc.) or cause significant distress, then you could benefit from talking to a professional.
