R U OK? Day
Tomorrow, September 15th is R U OK? Day.
The day aims to get everyone to ask a friend, colleague, family member or stranger ‘Are you ok?’.
The tag line “A conversation could change a life” is a simple one, but so very true, and not something most of us think about on a day to day basis.
The day aims to encourage conversation between people, particularly in relation to suicide. It aims to break down the barriers and make it ok to tell someone that you are struggling.
The day encourages us to all ask ‘are you ok?’, listen without judgement, encourage action and follow up. This is an important step in helping others who may not be coping.
So, if you want to get involved, make a donation, or read some more about it go to
And remember to ask ‘Are you Ok?’
