Q&A Info Session // What not to say to someone who has a MI // 11 - 15 Sep

[ Edited ]

From Monday, 11 Sep – Friday, 15 Sep we are opening the floor to you to share your great and not so great responses people have had when you have shared about your mental health.

With RUOK? Day coming up, we thought rather than looking at what TO say, we thought to put a spin on it and educate others on what NOT to say to someone who has a mental illness.

What do you find unhelpful?

Most importantly - what is the best response someone can have when you disclose about your mental health?

Hi @Shaz51 @NikNik 

You know what I find unhelpful from my husband?

"can't you just take another tablet" as if a tablet is going to fix everything
