Reach out on R U OK? Day: Thursday 14 September
18 August 2017
R U OK? Day reminds Australians nationwide to reach out to family, friends and workmates who might need a bit of extra support. If someone doesn’t seem themselves, start a conversation – even if it feels a bit uncomfortable at first. Remember, we’ve all had our troubles and sharing helps.
To highlight the day, we’re holding events on each Monash campus. Book in at one of our Conversation Cafés for a free hot drink. Take part in a Carpool Conversation. Or host your own event. Or you might prefer to join in with an activity already scheduled.
- Get involved with R U OK? Day events on your campus.
- Keep up to date with the campaign on the R U OK? Facebook page.
No matter how busy you might be, it’s important to make time for regular open and honest chats about life’s ups and downs. You could turn a life around by simply asking “Are you okay?”
