The art of checking in

Approaching a friend, family member, colleague or employee you’re concerned about is important at any time of year. Noticing changes in someone’s behaviour or mood and asking, “Are you OK?” can make a significant difference to the life of someone who is having a tough time with their mental health, or personal, financial or relationship issues.

Although most people will agree that asking, “How are you?” has the power to start meaningful conversations, it can still be daunting to take that first step when we notice that something is amiss. A few tips and strategies can help you prepare for these conversations.
