Giving effective support to others: Guest – Nancy Virden

What is effective support?

We all have good intentions of helping our friends and family, but how effective is your support? If you attempt to fix something for someone and they just want you to listen then you are causing more stress for your friend. Effective support allows you to ask them what they need and only provide what is healthy instead of being a problem solver.

Mental health advocate and motivational speaker, Nancy Virden, shares her struggles with mental health and is candid about the treatment she received. She also gives you insight into ways to give effective support to individuals who are struggling with mental health as well as the family members who are uncertain of how they can help their loved one.
