2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, making it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, to be willing to support those around us. R U OK?Day acts as a reminder to ask, “Are you Ok?” if someone in your life is struggling.
However, it’s important to remember that there’s more to say after R U OK – which is this year’s message. If someone says they’re not OK, make time to listen, encourage action and check in.
You don’t need to be an expert to keep the conversation going, and by knowing what to say and making someone feel supported you can make a positive difference in someone’s life. So today, and every day, we encourage you to check in on your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.
Here at the Riverwood Community Centre we are here to provide any support that we can, so please call us on 9533 0100 if you or someone who know is struggling. We are here to help.
