Got a feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would?

Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn?

Or they’re just not themselves?

Trust that gut instinct and act on it, about the signs and when it’s time to ask R U OK?

A conversation can change life

By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they are not ok, you can follow our conversation steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are ok, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.

R U OK? inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life.

You don’t need to be an expert to reach out – just a good friend and a great listener.

Use these four steps and have a conversation that could change a life.

1. Ask R U OK?

2. Listen

3. Encourage Action

4. Check in
