Are you okay? A guide to supporting your friends and family…

We know sometimes it’s hard to know what to say when you’re worried about a friend or a family member. That’s why we made this helpful guide!

It includes tips to get the conversation started, guidelines for listening and supporting, helplines and more. Are you worried about someone? Take the first step and ask ‘Is everything alright? Are you okay?’

This guide was produced by Youth Talk Donegal in December 2018, with the content mostly coming from young people who participated in a Mental Health Group at Donegal Youth Service. It includes the questions and comments that they find helpful.
