R U OK? Day is a national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone that any day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?”. It is run by an Australian non-profit suicide prevention organisation, dedicated to inspiring and empowering everyone to connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life. You don’t need to be an expert to reach out – just a good friend and a great listener.
