Here's Why

When sharing anything about yourself, you should feel support, not shame. Especially when it comes to mental health challenges.

We all try to show the world the best side of ourselves on social media. But while somebody may appear to be living their best life, there might be more to their story than meets the eye.

Life is complicated, and so is everybody’s life experience. While somebody may want to open up about what they’re really going through, fear of judgement can stop them from reaching out for the support they deserve.

Express Support

If someone you know is going through a rough patch, speak up! You can express your support for someone in need with some "Say This" tips. Consider talking to a trusted friend, family member or using one of the Get Support resources below if you need some extra help supporting a friend.
Start expressing your support with these “Say This” tips:
  • “I want to listen if you want to share what’s going on.”
  • “I’m here to help and support you.”
  • “You are not alone.”
