R U OK? DAY is a wonderful campaign promoting a simple message asking people to check in with friends and see how things are going with the question “R U OK?”
R U OK?Day is a national day of action on the second Thursday of September (13 September 2012), dedicated to inspiring all people of all backgrounds to ask each other ‘Are you ok?’
James Freemantle encourages rural communities to stay connected and be conscious of how the isolation of farming can impact on wellbeing. He also offers hope to anyone living with depression.
It’s great to see someone speaking out and so honestly about depression and anxiety.
In October 2012, I will climb Machu Pichu for depression and anxiety awareness. The Peru Challenge 2012 will run from October 20-31 and raise much needed funds for Black Dog Institute for the research and awareness of mood disorders. This is a cause close to my heart and I’m doing it honour of my Grandma who lived with depression most her life and also the many friends and other family members who live with this mood disorder.
