R U OK? Day Support Information

Got a niggling feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust that gut instinct and act on it.
 
By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up.  And if all is well, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
