Friends, family and colleagues are a crucial and necessary support mechanism for someone going through a difficult time. But it can be hard to know how to support someone who has a mental health issue or whose well-being you’re concerned about.
This Fact Sheet from the Black Dog Institute covers how to recognise if someone may be struggling with their mental health, simple steps to initiate conversation and provide support, as well as what to do if someone is suicidal.
The Fact Sheet supports a webinar recently run by The Black Dog Institute. Below is a link to a recording of this 60-minute webinar, where a panel of experts including a General Practitioner, clinical psychologist, and lived experience presenter provide advice on supporting others who may be going through a tough time.
