R U OK?Day is an annual day in September (the second Thursday) dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends and colleagues the question, “R U OK?”, in a meaningful way, because connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling.
R U OK? is a not-for-profit suicide prevention organisation founded by Australian Gavin Larkin in 2009 as a result of his participation in Landmark Worldwide’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, which requires attendees to create a community project.
If you are looking for information on ways you can contribute to the cause, or help someone you know, the R U OK? website provides extensive resources for people.
All it can take is a simple question…. “R U OK?”
Until next time.
