Change your mind, talking about mental health awareness, R U OK?

R U OK?

 

It's a simple question that can change a life. Will you ask someone that simple question today and listen to the answer?

 

If we can all take the time to show a little care and compassion for our friends, families, work mates or even a stranger we have never met before, we can make a positive difference to the lives of the people we meet and they can make a positive difference in our lives too
