Level Up Your Skills: Bell Let’s Talk
On January 25, 2023 it is Bell Let’s Talk Day. This is a powerful day that was created to help end the stigma and start the conversation surrounding mental health and mental illness.
We can level up our skills around mental health by starting with these 5 important strategies:
USE PERSON-FIRST LANGUAGE.
The words you use can make a difference. Choose words that help rather than hurt. For example, say “a person with a mental illness”, rather than “that person is crazy”.
EDUCATE YOURSELF AND OTHERS.
Exploring and understanding information surrounding mental health and mental illness can help challenge stigma.
Reach out to others, smile, or simply listen with an open heart and mind. These small acts of kindness can be an easy way to show you are there for someone. Avoid using phrases such as “you’ll get over it”, or “just relax and shake it off”. Instead, say “I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well”, or “what can I do to help?”
LISTEN AND ASK.
Sometimes, just being there for people you care about is all they need, or it may even be the first step towards seeking help and recovery. Ask non-judgemental questions such as “Is everything okay?”, or “How can I help?”
TALK ABOUT IT.
Many people experiencing mental health issues fear judgement, which prevents them from reaching out. Be open to a conversation with others. This can help eliminate stigma.
