Our mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health and now, more than ever, it’s important for us to connect with others. Simply talking with someone can make you, and them, feel better.
Calling, texting, video chatting and social media are all great ways to reach out to your family, friends and community. Take a moment to check in — ask how they are feeling and share what you are feeling. It’s an easy step we can all do to feel better and help others. It may even save a life.
The more we all talk about our challenges to living a happy, balanced life, the more likely we are to seek help when we need it. Watch and share these Let’s Talk messages.
