R U OK? Day 10 September

R U OK? Day

10 September 2020

R U OK? Day is a national suicide preventative initiative that encourages us to take action and ask ‘Are you OK?’ to anyone who might be struggling with life.

The current statistics show that over 3,000 Australians die from suicide each year, which equates to 8 Australians a day.

This year, 2020, has been a challenging year for all, some more than others.

So it is important to check on your staff and their well-being and encourage your staff to check on each other and ask R U OK?

It is more vital than ever to be able to spot signs of suicide risk and engage in meaningful conversations to safely support those who are struggling.
