There’s more to say after R U OK?
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, be willing to support those around us.
‘There’s more to say after R U OK?’, is the message for R U OK?Day 2020 (Thursday 10 September) and will focus on building confidence and increased skills for people so they know how to navigate a conversation with someone in their life who might be struggling.
You don’t have to be an expert but by knowing what to say you can show you genuinely care and help someone access appropriate help long before they’re in crisis. That conversation could change, or even save, their life.
By asking, listening with an open mind, encouraging action and checking in, you can help family, friends or colleagues through a tough time.

On R U OK?Day and World Suicide Prevention Day, join Australia at Home for an R U OK? Conversation about reminding Australians that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” if someone in your world is struggling with life’s ups and downs. The panel will talk about their R U OK? experiences, why R U OK? works, what to say when someone says they’re not OK and how you can continue a conversation that could change a life.
