Be A Better Phone Friend for Mental Wellbeing

Three's "Be A Better Phone Friend" campaign shares the message that "We call, we chat. We hear them. But are we really listening?".

Three UK and Samaritans partnership refer to five listening styles.

Which are you?

  1. The Interviewer
  2. The Worrier
  3. The Attention Splitter
  4. The Fixer
  5. The Filler

Three UK and Samaritans also offer advice to help you help other people, by improving your listening skills, and being a better phone friend.

You may find your friend is actually really struggling with their mental wellbeing. They may be in a really dark head space and really need your help.

But they may be struggling to find the words. Mental wellbeing issues can make it harder to think straight about feelings, and the person may need time.

By simply speaking differently with your friends you might be able to really help them, their mental wellbeing, their mental health and your friendship.
