Hi Dr Price
Hope you are having a nice morning
How do you suggest to a friend that they may benefit from psychological help, without coming across as patronizing or condescending towards them? I don't want to insult them by suggesting they need to see someone but I feel concerned about them as my friend.

"I feel concerned about you as my friend," is good. You can even offer to come along for the first visit if that would be appreciated. You can normalize the experience that nearly everyone these days at some point may need to consult with someone.
