Guide to Supporting Peers in Sensitive Situations
Below is a downloadable guide that gives youth (and adults!) some essential listening and communication skills in order to respond to someone sharing a difficult situation or topic. How we all respond in these moments can have a major impact on the other person’s wellbeing, as well is if they decide to tell others and seek further help.
We encourage parents to share this with their children, and consider using it as the starting point for an ongoing discussion to better understand what teens are struggling with in the present day.
