It has been a tough 18 months for many people around the world and right now more than ever, it is important for us to be checking in on each other to ensure we're getting the support that we all need throughout these times.
R U OK Day is a great opportunity to spark up a conversation with a loved one, and see how they are really doing. It is a day that aims to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation.
R U OK day is more than just asking those around you if they’re okay, there are important steps that need to follow the question to ensure that the conversation is meaningful.
Use these four steps and have a conversation that could change a life:
- Ask R U OK?
- Encourage action
This day is a great opportunity to shine a light on conversations like these, but it is crucial for us all to be taking part in these conversations, not just on R U OK day, but also the days that follow.
You don’t need to be an expert to reach out, just a good friend and a great listener.
