Do You Know How to Reach Out to a Friend or Loved One Who May Be Living With a Mental Illness?

When you see a friend or a loved one who may be struggling with their mental health, it can be difficult to know what they need. However, a great way to find out is to talk to them about how you can best provide support.

If you want to be there for a friend or loved one who may be living with mental illness, be prepared to listen and let them know you care. It’s important that you provide a safe space for them to share their experience; try not to tell them how they should feel or what they should do.
