invite

invitación - Ten una conversación amorosa y cariñosa. Comience diciéndole a la persona que está preocupado por ellos señalando algo que hayan hecho, dicho o escrito específicamente. “Me he dado cuenta________.” ¿Estás bien?

Eight out of ten people considering suicide give some sign of their intentions.

invitation to connect:

  • social connection improves mental, physical, and emotional well being.
  • individuals who feel more connected to others have lower levels of anxiety and depression along with higher self esteem and greater empathy for others.
  • a sense of belonging is a human need. Illnesses like depression can be a lonely journey and feelings of prolonged isolation can have detrimental effects to our health - mental and physical. Feeling like you belong is an important aspect in seeing your value in life and coping with painful emotions or situations.

invitation for change:

  • invite yourself to make a change in your school, workplace, or community to create a healthier environment by implementing mental health education and awareness.

invitation for conversation:

  • Invite yourself to tell the individual you are concerned using an “I” statement. “Can we talk? I’ve noticed you haven’t been yourself lately, and I’m really worried about you.”
  • invite yourself to listen with empathy and understanding. Be patient - it could be the first time this person is opening up about their mental health.

nice

challenge

Reto - Reducir el estigma. Busca ayuda. Desafíate a ti mismo a hablar abiertamente sobre la salud mental, tal como lo harías con la salud física. Haga preguntas como:¿Cuánto tiempo hace que se siente de esta manera? ¿Actualmente está recibiendo ayuda? ¿Cómo va su tratamiento?

More than 90% of people who die by suicide have a mental health condition.

challenge stigma

  • be open when talking about mental health! Don’t let stigma create self doubt and shame.
  • be conscious of language. Don’t use mental illness as an adjective…”He’s so bipolar.”
  • be supportive! Show compassion for individuals with mental illness.
  • be aware. Educate yourself with the basics of mental health and complete the be nice. Pledge. Knowledge creates the confidence to take action!

Signs someone is in crisis

  • Feeling helpless, hopeless, or worthless
  • social isolation
  • quitting something they previously loved like a sport or hobby
  • increased irritability or rage
  • giving away their belongings or saying goodbyes

empower

Empoderar - Empoderar con recursos. Lifeline de prevención de suicidio 1-800-273-8255 (hablar) Línea de texto de crisis 741741

Two in five Americans sometimes or always feel that their relationships are not meaningful (43 percent) and they are isolated from others.

Protective Factors

  • Identifying at least one trusted person in your life
  • Access to and utilizing services
  • Being involved in activities and groups at or outside of school or work
  • Supportive family members, friends, and coworkers
  • Having self-awareness
  • Positive role models, outlook on life, and/or attitude
  • Faith

Coping with depression or anxiety

  • be active! There are plenty of ways to exercise without hitting the weights or running a marathon. Find something you enjoy and stick to it!
  • be healthy. Your nutrition plays a major role in your overall health - mental and physical. Balanced meals and staying hydrated fuel your body and mind in a positive way.
  • sleep matters! You need to be recharged everyday, and without sleep, your body and mind will eventually shut down. Make 8-10 hours a night a priority for maintaining good health.
  • be safe. Avoid harmful substances and realize that drugs or alcohol are not healthy ways to cope with stress. They may feel good in the moment, but they can ebe dangerous in the long run.
