R U OK? Day is our national day of action on the second Thursday of September (12th September 2013), and dedicated to reminding people to regularly check in with family, friends and colleagues by asking R U OK? By reaching out to one another we can support and help each other through life’s ups and downs.
HOW CAN A CONVERSATION CHANGE A LIFE?
Research shows that people who have strong relationships are less likely to consider hurting themselves as an option when struggling with life. Regular, face-to-face conversations can help us to build and maintain strong relationships with friends and family.
