Get Ready for R U Ok?

GET READY ...

R U OK? Day is happening on Thursday, 13 September.

Get ready to celebrate R U Ok? within your workplace on Thursday, 13th September 2018.

We spend up to 60% of our waking hours at work so this is the perfect place to pause and ask a simple question that could make the world of difference to someone struggling with life’s challenges. 


According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, between 2012- 2016, the average rate of suicide was 2795 deaths per year. That equates to an approx. 8 suicides per day. To think that many people feel suicide is their only option is heartbreaking. 

To get involved it is as easy as asking just one simple question: R U OK?

We encourage all Australian workplaces to get involved in this great initiative and will be sharing some great tips and resources with you to help spread the word.
