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.

Have you got a feeling that someone you know isn’t behaving as they normally would? They don’t seem themselves; they might be more agitated or withdrawn? Trust that gut instinct and act on it.
By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they are not OK, you can follow R U OK?’S four conversation steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are OK, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
The four steps are: 
Ask – “Are you OK?” When you’re in a quiet comfortable space that’s ideal for them.
Listen – Let them talk without interruption and listen with an open mind.
Encourage Action –
Check In – Check in with them again soon to see how they’re going.
