- The first thing is to know the signs of mental health problems and be able to identify when someone needs your help
- Once you have identified the problem, you can offer your support in various ways. For example, if they are feeling low, you can send them a friendly message or a call to check up on them and make sure they are doing well
- The other way is to introduce them to different methods of coping with stress or anxiety — show empathy by listening and validating their feelings without judgment
- Lastly, if they are struggling with suicidal thoughts or tendencies, it’s important that they seek professional help immediately through a therapist or psychiatrist.
