R U OK? Day 2019


R U OK? Day 2019


R U OK? Day has arrived again. It is our national day to support people who may be struggling, just by simply asking “Are you OK?”.


This year, the R U OK? theme is encouraging everyone to:

1. Trust the Signs;

2. Trust your Gut; and

3. Ask R U OK?

R U OK?’s mission is to inspire and empower everyone to connect with people in a meaningful way and provide support to anyone struggling with life.
