How do we talk about mental health? Try these simple tips to start the conversation:

 
  • Stop the silence

    • If someone opens up to you about their depression, anxiety or another mental health concern, they’re placing their trust in you. Ask questions, show concern, and keep the awkward silences at bay.
  • Be nice

    • It sounds simple enough, but try to say the right things with openness, warmth, caring and sincerity.
  • Listen

    • The fact that you are there can make a world of difference, so in your conversation, try to err more on the side of listening.
  • Keep in contact

    • Offer availability by phone, text, email, or a time to meet up. Just be there.
  • Don’t ignore it

    • Don’t be afraid to ask about the well-being of another if you think they might be hurting. Trust your senses.
  • Offer help

    • Everyone is different. They may want very specific help or no help at all. Either way, you can always ask and be open to the answer.
  • Keep the conversation moving

    • It’s OK to talk about other things to keep silent lulls out of conversation; as long as they know you’re completely open to revisiting the topic later.
