Friendship is everlasting
Friend Support and Bystander Intervention
First off, thank you for caring so deeply for your family and friends to learn more about how to help them and stand up for their health. Please remember, unless you have a degree and education in this area you are not a trained professional and getting your loved one to a professional is vital but, for many step one is just talking.
Now, take a deep breath, remind yourself that you care for your friends and help them. It's scary, we know. You can do it!
