There are many ways to help us that need it and are afraid to ask for help because one of the biggest biases we still have in our community is showing weakness. But you can let those around you know that you care, that you are there for them, and that your door is open to talk anytime, but one of the best ways is just to be around each other, hang out, go to a movie, talk about your day. To be a true friend, not just another face in the lobby of a conference.
