Today is R U OK? Day, a national day of action where we are all reminded to ask our mates ‘Are you ok?’ not just today but every day, to support those struggling with life’s ups and downs.
A conversation could change a life, so we are encouraging all St Mary’s players, members and supporters to check in on at least one of their mates today.
R U OK? have a great range of fantastic resources to help people meaningfully connect and lend a helping hand – you don’t have to be a mental health expert!
To help you have a conversation, we have put some of the most useful resources below:
- Guide to asking R U OK?
- R U OK? Guide for sporting coaches
- Learn the signs it’s time to ask R U OK?
- Take the quiz to see if you are prepared for an R U OK? conversation
- List of free and professional support services
