Supporting a colleague, friend or family member

You may spend a lot of time with your workmates. This puts you in a good position to notice changes in someone’s behaviour or mood, which may indicate that they are not coping. Have you noticed signs that a workmate is behaving differently? Maybe missing deadlines or getting frustrated with tasks or people?

Or have you got a friend or family member who seems to need some help?

If you’re concerned that someone doesn’t quite seem themselves, starting a conversation and checking they’re OK can make a real difference. Having someone show concern can often be a turning point, encouraging them to seek support.

Importantly, supporting someone else also means  Looking after yourself
