Connecting and communicating with someone when they are unwell

Hi everyone,

Last months we ran a great webinar about how to connect with someone when they unwell. Some of the issues we touched on were:

1) How to respond to someone who shares with you they are struggling 

2) How to connect with someone who is showing symptoms of psychosis

3) What happens when you call a crisis team or emergency services for your loved one

You can check it out below:

Are the experiences shared in this webinar similar to yours?

How have you gone about connecting and communicating with your loved one when they are unwell? Do you have any tips of what to do and what not to do?
