Check In On Your Homies

A new initiative powered by WIRTH Hats

About The Initiative

We know it can be hard or awkward or scary but we all need to remember to take a moment and check in on our homies sometimes. You’d be amazed at the impact a simple message can make on someone who may be struggling.

Don’t know where to start? We’ve collected a list of resources for you below that offer research-based tried and tested methods and tips to help you check in on your homies. Here’s a brief overview.

1) Send that text / make that call

The scariest part about checking in on a friend is before it even happens. Maybe we think we are overreacting or that they will respond to it negatively, but there is no harm in asking. Bethere.org has some incredible tips and tutorials on how you can approach checking in on someone and what may be the right or wrong things to say.

2) Ask “what can I do to help?”

Poor mental health can bring even the strongest of us to our knees and there is no shame in needing support. Asking your friend how you can support them is a great way to show you care and can be a great way to help them on the right path. HereToHelp has some great ideas on things you can offer to do if they don’t have an answer for how you can help. From someone as little as checking in on them, to being an accountability partner, we definitely recommend this resource to check out.

3) Take Care Of Yourself

Learn to recognize your limits and take care of yourself. We all know that we can’t pour from an empty cup and we all have a limit on how much we can give. If a conversation weighs heavy on you or maybe you’re going through your own mental health journey, know the signs of how and when to set boundaries and of course reach out for help if you ever need it. DoMore.ag has a great guide on what kinds of boundaries we need to set when supporting someone through their mental health.

Hats & Stickers

We at WIRTH Hats support the idea of checking in on your homies so much, that we created a hat just for the cause. Available in both cream and navy with a custom graphic created by WIRTH friend Joe Homsy, we hope that if anyone were to see this hat around town, it would act as a reminder to check in on their pals. Little purposeful check-ins more often goes a long way.

Don’t want a hat? We want to get the message out to Check In On Your Homies that we created a free bumper sticker that we want to send to YOU. At the bottom of the page there is a sticker product where you can get a free sticker or pay $5 for a 5 pack.

Check In On Your Homies is a new initiative powered by WIRTH Hats.

We believe there needs to be a push around the world for everyone to make an effort to regularly check in on our loved ones. From friends to family to coworkers, creating a culture of checking in on those in our life is an essential part in making sure we're all doing okay. And if we're not okay, that's okay too. There are resources, free counselling, and so much more for us out there to get us back to being ourselves.
