September 13 is R U OK? Day
Suicide prevention charity R U OK? aims to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and support those who are struggling with life. This year, R U OK? Day falls on September 13. The organisation has released a two-minute video as part of their 2018 campaign which highlights the small changes in a person’s behaviour that could be a sign of struggle. The video was inspired by politician Julian Leeser’s First Speech in Parliament, in which he talks about the weeks leading up to his father’s suicide, and the small changes that he witnessed in his father’s behaviour. Head to the R U OK? website to find out more about the organisation, watch the video, and learn how to have a conversation that could change a life.
