R U OKAY Day (Australia)

*trigger warnings*

RUOkay? – Suicide Preventation

This is an interesting cause, I know people who really love it and I know people who really have hated it. Now RU Okay is supposed to be about reaching out and asking people…Are you okay? It’s supposed to be about encouraging people to reach out, if they feel something is wrong with themselves or with someone else. Of course the R U Okay team encourage people to do this every day, not just on the one day a year. They also encourage people to speak face to face, not just on social media.

However, some people detest the day, as they are going through something at the time, so of course “They are not okay”.

It’s a tricky business really.

Now, I want to point out that this mainly an Australian idea, but I don’t see why everyone else can’t use it either.
