????\\R U OK Day. Thursday 12 September//????

Got a niggling feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. 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 our 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 team behind R U OK Day have designed a quiz to help you feel more confident asking, “Are you OK?” and starting a conversation with someone you’re worried about. It’ll take a few minutes and hope it will leave you feeling more equipped to start a conversation that could change a life.
