In Honor Of Mental Health Awareness Month, I'm Offering To Talk To Anyone That Needs A Friend, Right Here, Right Now

Everyone deserves to have a friend when they need one most.


As many of you are aware, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. It's no secret that mental health is a topic very near and dear to my heart, and I've been racking my brain recently to figure out what more I can do to help out in mental health in honor of this month. After thinking about what kind of support I would have liked when I was at my worst, I think I've come up with something to help out.

I've heard of so many people lately that are suffering on their own, without a person in the world that they feel like they can talk to about this kind of stuff. I was the same way myself when I was at my worst. I felt so alone in the world, like there was nobody I could talk to that understood what I was going through. Sometimes all it takes is one friendly face or one person truly willing to lend an ear to make all the difference in the world.

For this reason, I've decided to volunteer to be that person for anyone anywhere on the planet that may need it. I've created an email account that anyone in the world can feel free to send an email to if they need someone to talk to. The email address is simply talkwithcole@gmail .com

Now, I'm not a therapist or a mental health professional in any way, and I recognize that. If you need professional help or are feeling suicidal, please seek outside help or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. What I'm here for is not to take the place of any of those extremely important resources, but instead just to be a friend to anyone that's going through a tough time and needs one. I check the email several times a day and always respond as soon as I'm able to. I simply just want to help those struggling feel a little less alone in the world, and like there is someone that they can talk to and that understands what they are going through.

If you feel like you need a friend to talk to, please don't hesitate to send me an email. I'm here to listen, to be your friend, and to help in any way I can within my ability. Everyone deserves to have a friend to listen to them when they need one most.
