My tip for today is raising your awareness of change in you and those around you.
Before we can support others, we need to check where our head is at. Taking a moment to think ‘how am I feeling today?’ is important for our own self-care and critical to increasing our resilience.
When it comes to those around us – family, friends, loved ones, neighbours, community as well as workplace connections – peers, line management, senior management, support staff, customers – raising awareness to notice the subtlest of changes in someone enables us to start a conversation which could literally save a live.
The earlier we start a conversation, the earlier someone can get the help they need.
