You can make a difference to someone who’s struggling by having regular, meaningful conversations about life! If you feel like something’s up with someone you know or you notice a change in what they’re doing or saying – trust your gut instinct and take the time to ask them “Are you OK?”. You don’t have to be an expert to have a caring, meaningful conversation.

Follow R U OK?’s four conversation steps:

  • Ask R U OK?,
  • Listen with an open mind,
  • Encourage action,
  • Check in
  • Learn the signs and how to ask R U OK? at ruok.org.au.

    Sometimes conversations are too big for workmates, friends and family. At these times, it can help to call upon specific organisations:

    Lifeline (24/7 )
    13 11 14
    lifeline.org.au

    Suicide Call Back Service (24/7)

    Remember, you can make a difference to someone’s life!
