Listen without making judgments
You don’t know what someone with mental health issues is going through or how they perceive their own traumas and struggles. Remain empathetic and refrain from judging their actions or coping methods.
Gently advise your friend or colleague to start seeking help for their mental health issues with a trained professional. This may help to ensure their safety and guide them in the right direction.
It’s important to seek out help when you are struggling. It’s equally important to try and support those in your life who you notice are struggling.
Seeking help is important and should never be stigmatized.
By reaching out, you’ll help break the stigma associated with conditions like anxiety and depression. At the same time, you’ll make sure that you find the right level of care and social support that you need.
