RUOK Day!

Sep 7, 2021 | News, Parliament

This Thursday is R U Ok day, an important reminder to be looking out for your friends and family during this incredibly challenging time.

Stay at home restrictions impact us all in different ways and if you are struggling, I would encourage you to seek help, talk to your friends and confide in your family.

There are many fantastic resources out there that you can access if you need support or someone to talk to. Just to name a few –

  • Lifeline
  • Beyond Blue
  • Kids Helpline
  • Headspace
  • Friend line
  • Head to Help
  • Vincent Care… there are many more.

If you see someone struggling, ask them how they are, and refer them to the resources that are available.

We are all fatigued, and it is easy to feel disconnected when you are separated from those you love.

Look out for one another. Ask, Are you okay?
