    How YOU Can Help a Friend with a Mental Health Concern

    • Take it seriously. Act NOW.
    • Find a quiet, private place to talk to your friend.
    • Tell him/her why you are concerned and what specific behaviors you’ve noticed.
    • Talk in a calm, nonjudgmental, and caring way.
    • Listen, don’t lecture.
    • Encourage your friend to seek help.
    • Prepare for all possible reactions. You may need to ask other people to assist you.
    • Take care of yourself.
    • Offer support, understanding, and encouragement.
    • Never keep talk of suicide a secret. Tell a trusted adult (school nurse, school counselor, teacher, coach, parent, etc.).
