R U OK? Day is today!


R U OK? Day is a national day of action dedicated to inspire all Australians to ask family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, ‘Are you ok?’
By regularly reaching out to one another and having open and honest conversations, we can all help build a more connected community and reduce our country’s high suicide rate.

Most people don't openly share their feelings, particularly if they're struggling.
The best thing we can all do is regularly talk to the people we care about - regardless of whether they are at risk - because connection is good for us all.

The Aged Case Work Team recommend the following resources which will help you to talk to someone or to tell someone that you are not ok.

In the time it takes to have your coffee, you can start a conversation that could change a life.

To connect with crisis support lines call: 1800 RUOKDAY (1800 7865 329)

JewishCare provides support  services in the community in areas of disability, mental health, family support and aged care  - for more information call FirstCall on  1300 133 660
