Steps to Approaching Mental Health Conversations and Services.
1 | Timing.
It doesn’t have to be a perfect time, but it should be a time and place that allows you to speak freely with privacy and minimal distractions, such as taking a walk.
4 | Offer the help THEY need.
Offer reassurance, then ask how you can best support them where they are. Do they need more resources? Help connect them. Are they more comfortable talking to someone else? Help them find someone.
2 | Explain why you’re concerned.
You can say something as simple as, “I’ve noticed you don’t seem like yourself lately, I wanted to check in on how you’re doing.” Then listen.
5 | Thank them.
Let them know how grateful you are to listen, and how glad you are that they shared with you.
3 | Validate.
Make it clear you’re listening without judgment and move forward how they’re most comfortable. Let them know what they feel is real, important, and worth talking about.
6 | Give it time.
Understand that your loved one may need time, but that continuing to reach out and support them by listening may be the best thing you can do.
