It can be so wonderful when others reach out & offer their help & assistance. This is why we should do the same for others! It can be so helpful & rewarding, which is why I want to share some tips with you on how you can achieve this!
I know I talk a lot about how we can work on ourselves & how to be there to better our own mental health, but I think it would also be helpful to know ways that we can help others with their mental health.
Whether people acknowledge it or not, everyone appreciates the help that others offer. Your help may not be met with open arms, but it’s still appreciated & the right thing to do. Preparing yourself with different ways to be there for others is so important because it shows you care & are willing to be there for them, whether they want it or not.
There have been many people in my life that have offered to help me with some mental health issues I have run into & for a long time, I would always tell them ‘no’ & that I got this, but a lot times this wasn’t true. And I really appreciated those same people & others continually come to me & offer to help me because this continued offer of help is what drove me to finally ask for help with things that were really outside of my control.
And I know we shouldn’t go around expecting that type of behavior because some people will take you at your word & just stop asking, but it’s wonderful when others & new people do continue to put that offer out there. And you can be that person, too, that is offering help to others & possibly there when they finally accept it.
So today, let’s chat about some great ways for you to help others with their mental health:
1. Practice Active Listening & Give Accepted Hugs
2. Learn More About What They’re Going Through.
3. Celebrate Their Small Wins
4. Avoid Comparisons.
5. Respect Their Limits & Boundaries.
6. Keep Communication Open.
7. Offer to Help with Different Tasks, But Not Force.
