The Red Circle develops and offers materials and training on psychological literacy and crisis response.
Sometimes we find ourselves at a loss for words or actions. When a friend confines that they've been assaulted, what do you do? When a family member has been dealing with depression, what kinds of questions should you ask? What do you do after a loss?
The first conversation about a difficult topic typically happens with a trusted friend or family member. How we respond in these situations can change their life, yet we often don't know how to optimally support the people we care about. The Red Circle is working on changing that: We want to create a world in which we're competently there for each other. Just as we learn how to treat a physical wound or to change a broken tire, psychological literacy is essential to get through life and to build and maintain strong bonds with friends, families, communities, and the workplace.
