RU OK DAY 2021
Today is RU OK day.
It is a day to promote awareness of mental health and suicide and is a time to encourage Australians to reach out to those at risk in their community. By starting a conversation with RU OK?, it encourages people to focus more so on friends, family, and colleagues, highlighting the need to start the conversation about mental health by just listening.
At Centacare, we love to get together to share a meal, check in on each other and have a conversation starting with RU Really OK? However, like many of us some of our team are working from home, so we asked each other a little differently this year. Its ok not to be ok, but don’t wait for it to become far too much, tell someone if you are not OK, have that conversation.
