R U OK? Day

National R U OK? Day will be held on Thursday (10 September) to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life.

This year has been challenging for everyone, making it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, to support those around us.

You don’t have to be an expert to keep the conversation going when someone says they’re not OK.

By knowing what to say you can help someone feel supported and access appropriate help long before they’re in crisis, which can make a really positive difference to their life.

You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener.

Use these four steps and have a conversation that could change a life:

1. Ask R U OK?

2. Listen

3. Encourage action

4. Check in

Below is an activity sheet that takes a few minutes to complete. Students can fill in the captions on a cartoon with what they would say after R U OK? Send the sheet back to Ms Hume by Thursday (10 September). We will then create a CRC Melton phrase collage for R U OK? Day.
