Hey Hawks today is RU Okay Day. It’s okay to not feel okay, and there are lots of ways of coping with these feelings. By engaging in discussions and opening up the conversations, we can help break down the stigmas around mental health. Any day you’re concerned someone is struggling, trust your gut and ask, “are you OK?” because your conversation could change a life.
If you or a loved one need immediate support contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 for a confidential chat any time of day or night. You can find other support services at www.ruok.org.au/findhelp These services are for everyone – whether you need a listening ear or are concerned about someone else.
