This R U OKAY? Day be the eyes and ears for your community. Look out for your loved ones, colleagues and neighbours. You do not need to donate or volunteer to make a difference, all your need to do is ask “R U OK?”
We’ve all got what it takes to look out for our friends and families and although it may seem tricky, there are ways to navigate a conversation when someone says, “No, I’m not ok” by following these four steps:
1. Ask R U OK?
3. Encourage action
4. Check in
Although the second Thursday of September is R U OK? Day you don’t have to wait every year to ask, and if someone asks you R U OK? It is okay to say “No”.
