1 in 4 people will be experiencing a mental health problem this year alone. If a mate says they’re fine, they might not be. To really find out, Ask Twice.
You know what it’s like. Someone asks if you’re ok, and you immediately say you’re fine – even if you’re not.
If someone is experiencing a mental health problem they might say they’re fine, but the reality could be different – they feel a bit embarrassed, awkward or unsure about how they’re really feeling and so reluctant to say any more.
That’s why it’s important to ask someone how they are twice – they might answer differently the second or even third time, or remember down the line that you were happy to talk.
Time to Change want people to Ask Twice if they suspect a friend, family member, or colleague might be struggling with their mental health. The simple act of asking again, with interest, can help someone to open up for the first time.
Time to Change has compiled five tips to help get people to open up during the Coronavirus pandemic.
