In brief: See below.

When a person has noticed a deterioration in his or her level of functioning that is impacting a major area of his or her life.
If there is significant emotional or physical distress due to symptoms and if a person is having thoughts of harming himself or herself or others, then the individual should definitely see a psychiatrist.
