“R U OK?” is a harm prevention charity that encourages people to stay connected and have conversations with others to help them through difficult times in their lives. This year the message is: Are they really OK? Ask them today.
This year the Student Wellbeing Committee offered several opportunities for students to learn about how to ask the question and help a friend. This culminated in the committee’s R U OK marquee on Thursday morning. There were games, give-aways and wellbeing activities for all students to participate in.
Life’s ups and downs happen to all of us so, chances are, someone you know might be struggling. Your genuine support can make a difference, whatever they are facing, big or small. If you would like more information about how to check in with a friend, visit: https://www.ruok.org.au/how-to-ask
