I've written previously (Day 41) about what things NOT to say to someone experiencing a mental health issue. But what are good things that you should say?
There is a great post on Reddit that I have saved and reference from time to time, which has a lot of great ideas on how to be a good friend to someone with a mental illness.
Most importantly, remember that they are the same person you know and love before you learned they had a mental illness. Treat the person with empathy and compassion. Offering to listen is just as powerful as saying something.
