This chart is just one of the great everyday tools that Bell has available in their Bell Let’s Talk Toolkit at https://letstalk.bell.ca/en/toolkit. Other tools include a conversation guide, tips for taking care of yourself and others, and a stress recognition checklist, and links that connect you can access.
The Toolkit also stresses the importance of ending the stigma our mental health and lists these 5 simple ways.
1. Language matters: the words you use can make all the difference
2. Educate yourself: knowing the facts and myths about mental illness can be a great way to help end the stigma.
3. Be kind: simple acts of kindness can help open up the conversation and let someone know you are there for them.
4. Listen and ask: being a good listener and asking how you can help can be the first step in recovery.
5. Talk about it: mental illness touches us all in some way directly or through a friend, family member or colleague. Most people with mental health issues can and do recover, just by talking about it.
