R U OK?

Thursday 8th September / presented by Leona Devaz

Today is R U OK Day, a suicide prevention initiative started by the organisation RUOK?.

RUOK? aims to destigamise conversation around mental health, depression and suicide.

More importantly, RUOK? hopes it will push people to access professional support when they need it.

Yet the day itself has been met with some criticism from those suffering from mental health issues: why don’t we ask this question the other 364 days of the year?

To help start the conversation, Leona Devaz spoke with R U OK?’s Campaign Director Rebecca Lewis on The Mag.
