How can I start a conversation about mental health?

Talking about your mental health is not always easy and can sometimes be awkward, but it shouldn't be; talking to someone can make a real difference. It can be hard to start the conversation, but here are some tips from Time to Change to help you with your approach. 

  1. Ask questions and listen
  2. Think about the time & space
  3. Don't try & fix it
  4. Treat them the same (they're still the same person as they were before!)
  5. Be patient.  

Just being happy to listen and have a conversation can really help reduce stigma and increase openness and help make wherever you learn, work or live a happier healthier place. 

Remember: People say they're okay, even when they are not, always ask twice.
