Have a #RealConvo

AFSP shares tools, resources and creative ways to have a #RealConvo with the people in your life. You don’t need special training to have an open, authentic conversation about mental health. Often, just talking about it can be the first important step in staying connected for yourself or someone else and helping get support or treatment if needed.

Some Quick Tips for Having a #RealConvo About Mental Health include:

  • When someone is struggling, just listen
  • Let the other person share at their own speed
  • Don’t pass judgment or offer advice — just be there
  • We all experience mental health differently, and that’s okay
  • Check back in, and offer to connect them to help if they need it
