Don’t Be A Dick is an educational movement for college students who don’t know the right way to talk to their friends about mental health problems. We get it, we’re not pros either. Mental illness isn't an easy topic to talk about, but we'll give you some tips to get you started.


Look, we get it. Talking about mental illness with friends can be tricky. You might not be equipped to know the right advice to give or the right way to say it. These nine tips are designed to educate friends on how to talk about mental illness.
