R U OK?Day is Thursday 12 September. It’s our national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
Every day, people experience life’s ups and downs; things like grief, relationship breakdowns, financial difficulty or losing a job. Sadly, at these times many people feel they don’t have anyone to confide in. You can play a role in supporting others and asking R U OK?
This year in the build-up to R U OK?Day we’re reminding everyone in our BSA and La Trobe Bendigo community that if something’s up with someone you know – there’s something going on in their life or you notice a change in that they’re doing or saying – it’s time to trust that gut instinct and ask them “Are you OK?”
To spread this message, we’ll be hosting free lunch, free ice cream, yoga and tai chi sessions and more!
