5 Things to help a mate

Here’s some things you can do when you know a mate’s not doing great.

They’re simple things, but not necessarily easy to do. Tough conversations can be hard, but a little awkwardness is worth it to make sure our mates know we care…

  1. Ask how they’re doing – then ask how they’re really doing. 
  1. Be honest with your own struggles – knowing others go through struggles can help. 
  1. Admit when you’re not sure what to say – often, it’s not what we say, but our willingness to listen, that makes a difference. 
  1. Suggest a mental health professional could help – sharing with others can help us process our thoughts and find a way forward. 
  1. Keep in touch – keep checking in. Knowing others care is really important.
