What Helps, What Hurts


When you have a friend who seems to be going through problems that are affecting their mood, what do you do or say? How can you make it better? What shouldn’t you say?  These are some of the questions people ask themselves when they are unsure about what to do.

We know that you care about your friend and that you want to help, otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.  The What Helps, What Hurts campaign will help point you in the direction of what to say and what not to say when you want to offer help and support.

We want to hear from you about what helps and what hurts! You can share your thoughts, ideas, and stories on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook by using the hashtag #whathelpswhathurts.
