Listen, Show Them You Care, Be There;

Thank you for taking the time to watch my video. *Triggers possible*

It is hard to be there for someone when you have no idea what they are going through. But have you considered what you are saying or not saying may have an impact on their life?

The Myths:

Not every person with a mental illness is suicidal, every mental illness is different. Whether you know someone suffering with a mental illness or suffering from loss or stress. Please listen.

You will not catch it.

People who suffer cannot just get over it with counselling. Recovery takes time, every person recovers differently. In their own time.

You don’t have to know what to say. Just be there, show them you care, listen.

It may be the hardest thing u do, but it will be the best thing u do. Please reach out. X
