We are all facing a challenging time and adapting to a different way of living. This R U OK? Day make a moment meaningful by reaching out to someone and asking them how they are really going. You don’t need any special expertise – just be a friend, check in, offer your support and be willing to listen. A conversation could change a life.
R U OK? has free resources to help you ask R U OK?, get involved or find help.
