RU OK? Day 2018

Asking  RU OK? can make a big difference to someone who is struggling. If you notice a friend, family member or colleague who seems to be having a hard time coping, make the time to start a conversation and ask, RU OK? It could save a life!

It sounds like a simple question, but sometimes it can be hard to start such an important conversation. Maybe you feel like you don’t know how to ask? A relaxed chat while sharing a meal or over a cuppa is one great way to find out how someone you care about is feeling and to offer them your support.

Your local TAFE Library holds a variety of resources that you may find useful, ranging from books and eBooks on mental health to cookbooks with recipe ideas for dinner with friends.

Remember, you can ask RU OK? any day of the year….
