FACES OF THE CDA
Offer Help Before Giving Space
When you are concerned about a friend, colleague or family member, here are some tips on what you can do.
- Sometimes the biggest catalyst for change comes from a friend or colleague.
- Confront them from a caring perspective. The most impactful three words are, “I am concerned.”
- Keep the conversations in “I” statements (i.e., “I have noticed you have been really withdrawn lately.” or “I have noticed a change in your behavior.”). Follow your statements with, “I want you to know I am here to support you in any way I can!”
- Offer resources such as the CDA’s confidential counseling service, which is a FREE benefit to members and their households. Or help them find personal or business coaching, mentorship or peer assistance.
