Odyssey House NSW embraced yellow for R U OK? Day
Odyssey House NSW has embraced yellow to recognise R U OK? Day. A national day of action encouraging everyone to regularly check in on each other by asking, “Are you OK?” and engage in meaningful conversations with those who may be struggling. Let’s remember to check in regularly with those around us.
R U OK? Day is a public health promotion charity that encourages people to stay connected, which can help when going through tough times and contributes to better health and wellbeing. It is a reminder to invest more time in our personal relationships and informal support networks. You don’t need to be an expert to reach out – just a good friend and a great listener.
A simple conversation with genuine concern, active listening, and an open mind can make someone feel supported and connected and create a lasting impact. Use these four easy steps and have a conversation that could change a life: Ask R U OK?, Listen, Encourage Action, Check-in.
