This Thursday the 10th of September is R U OK? Day.
It’s all about checking in with your work mates, friends, school friends and people surrounding you, and sitting down and asking them honestly and sincerely “Are you OK?” Really listen, really be there for them!
This episode speaks a bit to my experience as a teacher and tutor with R U OK? Day.
