Mental health day should be about visiting a family member, relative, friend or colleague who is going through a tough time,
to sit down with them and to give them dedicated quality time to listen and let them know you have heard, and respect their feelings without prejudice and judgement.
It should not be a day to talk to or about people with mental disability. It should be a day to listen to them. Give those suffering a safe space to walk into, where they will be welcome and heard by caregivers who know how.
And if you can’t visit, make a call and have a conversation and just listen. You can do wonders. Yes, you can.
