Acknowledging that they’re having a difficult time is important and ensuring that you’re open to talking with them about that when they want to. And also ensuring that there are things like that they’re eating healthfully, they’re getting as much exercise as possible and trying to help them to maintain as normal sleep patterns as you can and also trying to help them to keep active, not to withdraw and stop engaging in their usual activities, try and encourage them to keep doing that, so there’s less time spent ruminating.
