May is Mental Health Awareness Month and two messages you’ll hear a lot are:
“Reach out if you need support” and “If someone seems ‘off,’ be willing to listen to and support them.”
Both can sound deeply uncomfortable, if not impossible.
This episode might help. It proves you don’t have to be an expert
to help someone who is struggling,
and that “reaching out” can be less scary and energy-draining than it seems.
