Normalize Asking for Help

Let's Do This

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, take a moment to talk openly about the importance of asking for help. Share with the young people in your life that mental health is just as important as physical health, and there’s no shame in reaching out for support. Normalize conversations about mental health by discussing your own experiences or sharing resources where they can seek help. Let them know that whether it’s reaching out to a counselor, talking to a trusted friend, or seeking advice from you, it’s a brave and healthy choice to ask for help. By fostering an environment where asking for help is welcomed and encouraged, you contribute to breaking the stigma and promoting well-being for everyone. 

Stay Inspired

If discussing mental health is difficult for you or your young person, utilize resources like “How to Talk About Mental Health“ for guidance and support. These tools can help you navigate conversations with empathy and clarity, fostering understanding and openness. By equipping yourself with knowledge and tips for effective dialogue, you create a safe space for others to share their experiences and seek help when needed.
