R U OK? Day, coming up on September 12 this year, is a genuine opportunity for each of us to reflect on our own mental health, and check in with the people who are important in our lives.
Asking a simple question, ‘Are you okay?’ is an incredibly powerful way to help someone who might be finding life more difficult than usual. It lets them know that we care about their wellbeing and aren’t afraid to talk about it.
A significant part of this involves recognising that ‘it’s okay to not be okay’.https://www.bupahealthierworkplaces.com.au/employer/supporting-ruok-day-with-supportive-conversations/
