Managing Stress By Talking To Someone You Trust

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Humans thrive on social connections, which makes having a support system important for maintaining not just physical health, but also psychological health. Talking to someone you trust means confiding in a person you consider reliable.

The Managing Stress By Talking To Someone You Trust handout incorporates research on talking to a trusted individual. More importantly, it offers 7 tips to maximize social support, such as engaging in face-to-face interactions and expressing thoughts without fearing judgment.

Following the tips provided by this handout can encourage kids and teens to find solace in supportive relationships, which decreases their experience of stress. If they are too shy to connect with others, you can start by encouraging them to take small steps outside their comfort zone. On that note, feel free to download and share our resource on Conversation Skills.

This handout is included in our Stress Management Handouts Bundle along with 38 other evidence-based handouts to support a lifestyle with less stress.
