Got a feeling that someone you know or care about isn’t acting as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust your gut instinct and act on it.

You can learn more about the signs and when it’s time to ask R U OK? by watching this short video https://youtu.be/erHLP29tzPE

By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help a family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they’re not OK, there’s conversation steps to show them they’re supported, and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are OK, they’ll know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.

Here at SWH, our staff health & wellbeing manager Amy Hilton and health promotion team leader Alexandra Bell have some lovely things planned for us on R U OK? DAY. Stay tuned.
