Imagine a world where everyone is connected and are protected from suicide. This is what R U OK? are working to create. Last week I spoke with Anastasia from the R U OK? team. R U OK? is an Aussie suicide prevention charity inspiring people to meaningfully connect and support those struggling with life. As Anastasia shares, simply asking someone, “Are you OK?” and then starting the conversation could change someone’s life. She shares the steps you can take to show someone you care, that they are not alone and that help is available. We also talk about how to notice if someone needs you to reach out to them, and even what to do when you ask someone if they are OK and they don’t want to talk about it. This is a very important episode and provides you with the strategies you need to be there for your loved ones, friends and even strangers when they need you the most.
