Did you know that 27% of Canadians said they would be fearful of being around someone who suffers from serious mental illness? Be kind is the 3rd way that we can eliminate stigma. Simple kindness can make the world of difference. Whether it’s a smile or being a good listener, these simple acts of kindness can help open up the conversation and let someone know you are there for them. Expressions like “You’ll get over it” and “Just relax” can minimize how a person is feeling. Instead offer your support and say “I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well.” Ask what you can do to help.
