The Talk to a Sister lesson helps members learn more about how to approach a sister who needs help. This lesson is important in helping members be better prepared to assist their sisters. One of the most common dynamics in sisterhood is seeing that someone needs help, but not necessarily knowing what to do or say. The goal of this lesson is to give members tools to make seeking help more approachable for their sisters.


  • Demonstrate what actions are helpful to approach a friend, family member, or partner, who needs help.
  • Determine the differences between what a friend can do and what can only be done by a mental health professional.
  • Identify warning signs of someone who may be experiencing a severe mental health breakdown.
