R U OK?Day (Thursday 9 September, 2021) is the national day dedicated to reminding everyone that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” and support those struggling with life's ups and downs. This year the message is Are you really Ok? Ask today.
It's not always obvious that someone is struggling - and we sometimes need to be reminded to trust our gut instinct and dig a bit deeper. There’s more to say after R U OK? When someone says they’re not OK, make time to listen, encourage action and check in. You can learn what to say after R U OK? A conversation could change a life. #RUOKDay
In the spirit of the day, we invite you to join us in Fremantle from 10.30am AWST and 12.30am AEST at Drill Hall (ND25) on Thursday 9 September, as we host international speaker, best-selling author and workplace consultant, Dr Jenny Brockis as she presents The Changing Face of Mental Health – “You've Got This”.
The event is being live-streamed to staff (please see your staff email for zoom details).
Would you say something?
So if you think something’s worrying a work colleague, start a conversation to see if they’re ok.
If they’re not, all you need to do is listen, and then help them think about what can be done to make life easier.
Looking for help?
It’s ok to not be ok. Notre Dame wants to help you find the support and resources you need.
