It’s time to stop and ask R U OK


Its time to stop and ask our friends, family, colleagues… “R U OK?”

Just starting the conversation goes a long way in offering mental health support.

And its Ok not to be Ok.

R U OK? Day, September 9, is a reminder to start the conversation, or to check in with someone that you have already started the conversation with.

Landcare SJ are hosting two community and corporate tree planting days and morning teas in Jarrahdale and Pinjarra for an opportunity to get the conversation going.

Francis Smit, Executive Officer of Landcare SJ said, “The R U OK? planting day and morning tea is a great opportunity for community to get together and support one another. The event has been popular with businesses looking to address mental health in the workplace.”
