VIDEO: Let’s connect with Roger

Let’s meet Roger

Roger is in the lunchroom at work you haven’t chatted for a while, but you know he recently lost a large sum of money on an internet scam, and he and his wife have been arguing non-stop lately.

Some people may be scared to share how they aren’t coping as they are worried about rejection or they have tried before and been shut down. We also have to be aware of shame and having meaningful conversations in public places.

You need to –

  • Be non-judgemental
  • Allow the person to have the space to talk
  • Be curious and genuine in asking about how they are going
  • Let them know you are worried
  • Care and be the voice of HOPE
