RU OK? Day was held on Thursday 8 September. It was an important opportunity to remind everyone that every day is a day to ask ‘are you OK?’ and start a meaningful conversation with someone you notice that might be struggling with life.

No qualifications are needed to ask R U OK? A conversation could change a life. We can all make a difference when someone in our company, family, a friend and within our communities are struggling with life’s challenges by helping them feel connected and supported, no matter what they might be facing.

Here are some photos from this year’s AustraCold event:

Recognising and acknowledging that you are not feeling quite OK is a big step. Speaking up is often the hardest step. So it’s important to check in with your family, friends and colleagues and ask them “RU OK?“.
