Coping strategies for friends and families

Seeing someone you care about in distress is really difficult. It can feel hard to know what to do and how to respond. Many people worry about doing the wrong thing or making the situation worse. However, the most important thing you can do is just being there for someone.

Supporting someone in distress can also affect your own health and well-being, and it's important that people in caring roles are mindful of their own needs too.
