What not to do

When having a conversation with staff, avoid the following:

  • Using derogatory words such as “crazy” or “psycho.”

  • Pressuring them to get their act together.

  • Avoiding them.

  • Giving advice, e.g., telling them to keep busy or get out more.

  • Minimizing the problem.

  • Assuming that the problem will go away on its own.
