MIDWEEK MANTRA

YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF INSPIRATION, TASKS AND WORDS TO UPLIFT YOU AND BUILD MENTAL STRENGTH AND CLARITY FOR THE WEEK AHEAD.

MENTAL HEALTH: START TALKING

NEXT TIME YOU ASK SOMEONE HOW THEY ARE DOING SHOW A REAL INTEREST IN THE ANSWER, DONT JUST ACCEPT “FINE”.

THE MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION BELIEVE THAT HALF OF ALL ADULTS IN UK BELIEVE THEY HAVE A DIAGNOSABLE MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM. EVERY WEEK 1 IN 6 OF US EXPERIENCE FEELINGS OF ANXIETY OR DEPRESSION. SO THE CHANCES THAT SOMEONE YOU ASK “HOW ARE YOU REALLY DOING?” THEY THEN WON’T BE ABLE TO RESPOND IN A ONE WORD ANSWER. IF YOU ARE WORRIED TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO OPEN UP TO YOU.

“CAN WE TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ?”

“WHO WOULD YOU BE COMFORTABLE TALKING TO, IF NOT ME?’

“IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME. HOW CAN I HELP YOU FIND THE HELP YOU NEED?”

“I AM SOMEONE WHO CARES AND WANTS TO LISTEN. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO KNOW ABOUT HOW YOU ARE FEELING?”

TODAY TRY ONE OF THESE QUESTIONS IN RESPONSE TO SOMEONE WHO YOU MAY FEAR IS NOT JUST “FINE”.

REACH OUT TODAY.
