R U OK? Day has become an ingrained campaign that is actively promoted each year at Monash Residential Services (MRS). The theme this year couldn’t be more suited ‘There’s more to say after R U Ok?’. An important message that encourages the conversation of R U Ok? to continue beyond the question. It really is a conversation that could change a life and rather imperative given the various challenges that many have faced in 2020.
MRS staff came together over Zoom wearing yellow to hear from the Director, Trisha Prpich and participate in some fun trivia. Residents received a delightful surprise of a KitKat (Chit-Chat Partner of R U Ok?) delivered to their door to encourage them to ‘take a break’ and reach out to someone and have a conversation. Key messages encouraging how to have a meaningful conversation were also shared with residents via various communication channels and our friendly Residential Support Team was on-hand to offer any guidance or support.
