R U OK? Day September 15th

R U Okay? Day is coming up on Thursday September 15th. 

I'm all for suicide prevention. Start a conversation with someone you love. It could change their life.

If you do know someone who needs help encourage them to contact their GP or Lifeline. Take them to the doctor if you have to but please don't leave it too late.

WOW! I didn't realize the number of suicides was that high in Australia! It's probably high like that in a lot of places...unfortunately. Good idea to ask R U Ok?

Poetess, sadly it is more common than people realise. Depression and suicide still has a stigma about it that some try to keep quiet about.
