R U OK DAY
R U OK Day is a national day of action dedicated to inspiring all people of all backgrounds to regularly ask each other 'Are you OK?'
It's a national day of action which aims to support and encourage all Australians to connect with someone they care about and help stop little problems turning into big ones.
On R U OK day we want everyone across our country from all backgrounds and walks of life to ask family friends and colleagues: "Are you OK?".
Staying connected with others is crucial to our general health and wellbeing. Feeling isolated or hopeless can contribute to depression and other mental illnesses which can ultimately result in suicide. Regular meaningful conversations can protect those we know and love. It's so simple. In the time it takes to have a coffee you can start a conversation that could change a life.
A CONVERSATION CAN CHANGE A LIFE
R U OK? inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life.
You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener.
Start a conversation with these four steps:
- Ask R U OK?
- Encourage action
- Check in
HELP IN A CRISIS
The truth is some conversations just become too big for family and friends. If you're worried about someone and feel urgent professional support is needed contact your local doctor or the agencies below.
Like you R U OK? is not equipped to offer crisis intervention or expert counselling and our website is no substitute for the professional care available from the following organisations:
13 11 14 - Call 24/7 for crisis support
1800 55 1800 - Counselling for young people 5-25 years
September 11 Newsletter
Wednesday 6th September we celebrate our Grandparents and Special Grand People in our lives! Classrooms will be open at 8.30am for students to bring their visitors into play a game or complete an activity.
A Liturgy including a special collection will be taken up for St Vincent de Paul Society concluding at 10am. At the conlcusion, all students in the Choir, Foundation to Grade 2 will put a small performance in the school hall for all visitors.
To allow a variety of options for our Grandparents and Special Friends, can we ask that any families in a position to provide a plate for morning tea be brought into school the day before or the Wednesday morning. If any families use containers that need returning are reminded to label these clearly.
Grandparents Day recognises the contribution that grandparents make to families and communities. We would like to thank grandparents for their care and support and for sharing their knowledge, experience, and traditions with younger generations.
We thank you for your support in involving grandparents and special friends and helping provide the morning tea.
