If you know someone living with mental health, you don’t have to feel your obliged to say something to help them feel better right away (recovery, like most achievements and goals, don’t happen over night). And it’s okay if you don’t know anything on mental illness and how to help them deal with it. Just you coming as you are (because they too are coming as they are especially as they are revealing their mental illness to you), showing up and comforting them is all they need right now.
Hahaha! I know right?
