A conversation can be life changing. For many people, feeling supported is just what they need.
It can be challenging, though, to know exactly what to say when someone tells you they are stressed, having a difficult day, or have a mental health need.
Active Minds’ 3 V-A-R Steps help you know what to say and do when you want to support someone you care about. A conversation that includes the elements of Validate-Appreciate-Refer is one that allows you to actively listen to someone you care about and help them cope or bounce back.
