R U OK? Day at Gleneagles, Friday 12th September 2014



R U OK? Day is our national day of action 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.
