Mental Health

 What Can You Do About Mental Illness?

  • A powerful way to inspire hope is to share our stories
  • Support people who are living with mental illness – keep asking them to socialize even if they mostly say no – it’s nice to know you care
  • When we tell stories about what people have done when they are ill and laugh about it, we contribute to the stigma (this includes if the person is a celebrity)
  • It’s OK if you don’t know the “right” thing to say (because there is no one right thing) – just knowing you care and spending time helps
