We hear (and say) “reach out for help if you need it.” But for many reasons, including stigma, awkwardness, and lack of training, many people — even those in danger– do not. So it’s our responsibility to learn how to offer help to the people in our lives who may need it. Our guest, Sam Dylan Finch, shares 11 ways his loved ones have supported him in mental health crises. They are proven, doable things that could really lighten someone’s load, or even save a life. We detail five ways in part one, and the final six next week in part two. Please listen and share. The more we know the better we can support our loved ones. And the more they know, the better they can care for us.
