Every August sees Australia mark R U OK? Day. This year individuals were asked to “Trust the signs, trust your gut and ask are you okay?” It is based on the premise that you are the one who will likely notice changes in the mental health of those closest to you. And if you notice those changes, go ahead and check in with them.
So what are the signs to look out for? Any changes in what they are saying, what they are doing and what’s going on in their life, could be significant. Check out R U OK for a full list of the signs.
If you or someone close to you needs help to deal with mental health challenges there are many places to seek help.
