There’s more to say after R U OK?
Posted on 10th September 2020 by Ashley Dawson
Today is R U OK? Day, which is a national suicide prevention initiative developed in 2009 that encourages us to take action and ask ‘Are you ok?’ to anyone who might be struggling with life.
The team at GeersSullivan will be attending a Mental Health training session and a morning tea to raise awareness for R U OK? day.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while and check in with how they are. You never know the difference it can make in a time where people need support now more than ever.
Statistics prior to the current coronavirus pandemic show that over 3,000 Australians die from suicide each year, equating to more than 8 Australians a day.
