Mundubbera community to ask R U OK?
THERE continues to be a stigma around the best way to broach the subject of mental health with friends, family members, work mates or members of the community that you are concerned about.
The Mundubbera community will have the chance to learn the best way to navigate a conversation with someone they are worried about when the R U OK? Trust the Signs tour is in town.
R U OK? is a suicide prevention charity that aims to start life-changing conversations to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with people.
The tour to equip Australians to trust the signs, trust your gut and ask R U OK? will be host a free event at Archer Park on Monday, July 22 from noon to 1.30pm.
The community is invited to join the organisation for a free feed, activities for all ages and a chance to learn more about when it's time to ask R U OK? and how to use the four steps to navigate a conversation with someone you're worried about.
Local mental health and suicide prevention services will join us as well to let you know what support is available for the times an R U OK? conversation is too big for friends and family.
The Mundubbera stop is in the lead-up to R U OK? day on Thursday, September 12 and part of the tour that started in Gosford on July 10 and will travel over 14,000km before hitting 24 communities in every state before finishing on R U OK? day on September 12.
