R U OK? Are your colleagues ok too?
You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener.
R U OK? Day is a national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
This year in the build-up to R U OK? Day they are encouraging everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
They want everyone to feel confident they know the signs someone might need support by listening to what they’re saying, seeing what they’re doing or knowing what’s going on in their life. Whenever you notice a change, no matter how small, we want you to trust your gut and start an R U OK? conversation.
You can host your own events in your workplace or just join in through social media campaigns - but most importantly check with your colleagues that they are ok!
