The app takes you through four steps getting you to think about where you might check in, what you might say and how might you support your friend. There is also a section showing you things to consider, such as what if my friend denies there is a problem or what if I say something silly. After you have had your conversation you can go back into the app and rate how it went. The app will then give you advice on the next steps.
