Today is R U OK? day, our national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone that any day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” and support those struggling with life. This year’s message is ‘There’s more to say after R U OK?’
R U OK? has released new resources to encourage business leaders, owners and employees to build an R U OK? culture in their workplace so that everyone feels safe, supported, and encouraged.

By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they are not ok, you can follow our conversation steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are ok, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
