12 September is R U OK? Day. 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.
Shelston IP started the conversation at morning tea today. We are encouraging everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
We encourage everyone to know the signs when 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.
The truth is, some conversations just become too big for family and friends. If you’re worried about someone and feel urgent professional support is needed, contact your local doctor or the agencies listed here.
