Do not be afraid to ask for help and/or advocate on behalf of someone who needs help.
We all need lOVE!
Do not be afraid to ask for help and/or advocate on behalf of someone who needs help. Each of us have the responsibility to be a positive social change agent. If your love one is bleeding, you would quickly find a first aid kit and treat their wound. What about the cuts and bruises that are internal and affecting their mental health? Too often, we ignore the telltale signs that an individual is screaming for help. Instead we label them as “crazy” and/or “stupid,” when in fact your love one could be suffering with “bipolar disorders."
Start being a part of the solution today by choosing your words carefully and speaking up for the voiceless. The next time someone’s behavior is concerning, simply ask questions like “how are you?” and “would you like to talk?” This simply act of kindness could save a life. Be someone’s hero by sharing a smile, wave, and/or words of encouragement. Even a COVID-19 air hug might make their day.
If you are in crisis, and need immediate support or intervention, call, or go the website of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255). Trained crisis workers are available to talk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your confidential and toll-free call goes to the nearest crisis center in the Lifeline national network. These centers provide crisis counseling and mental health referrals. If the situation is potentially life-threatening, call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room. #suicideprevention #savealife #help
