Too Hard Basket: My friend is on a Covid-lockdown downer, how can I help him out of it? – Life Matters

Lisa has a close friend who lives in the UK, currently in extended lockdown.

They speak on a regular basis but she’s noticed in the last number of calls he’s getting really down about the situation he’s in and seems to be going into a deeper and darker place in each conversation.

She wants to help him but wants to avoid minimising how he feels, or asking him to reframe.

What can Lisa say or do to help him?

Every Friday we challenge our guests with a dilemma from your ‘too hard basket’ to discuss, unravel, and maybe even help solve for you.

Send your dilemma via email on the Life Matters web page or Facebook, ABC RN or send us a voice memo. Keep it to 150 words and you can always use another name.
