Offering to help someone who is struggling with a mental health disorder is not always as easy as it sounds, according to Inforum out of Moorhead, Minnesota. First and foremost, they advise concerned parties not to pretend that the mental health symptoms or issues don’t exist. Next, they say it’s important to avoid “should” statements that make it seem like fixing the situation is easy.

An interest in helping those who are struggling with mental health symptoms is admirable. Often the best place to start is exploring treatment options that may be able to assist them if the struggling person is your close friend or family member. Need help finding the best options in care? Call us today.

How to Talk About Mental Illness

  • If your friend or family member begins a discussion about their mental health issues, listen, ask thoughtful questions and show your support.
  • Consider your tone of voice and your body language. Make sure that you are demonstrating your friendly intent even if you feel uncomfortable.
  • Don’t be too forceful in the conversation. Listen to the concerns and needs expressed by your friend or loved one.
