However people are, whatever THEY are dealing with, you could be the turning point in that moment. Sometimes people just need to be HEARD.
We all have times in our life when we need support. In this moment you can be that lifeline for someone. Our goal is shifting the mental well-being conversation from the clinical to the personal; empowering each one of us to stand with others who are in crisis or just need to talk.
"Hi, How Are You?" Day
A Celebration of Music, Art & Mental Well-being
On January 22, we invite you to ask your friends, family, co-workers and loved ones -- "Hi, how are you?" You probably say that a lot, but this time, we want you to really mean it. "How are you really doing today? Are you okay?" Just by listening, being curious, standing in compassion and empathy, you can be the catalyst in changing a person's life.
