R U OK Day at SEES

On Thursday 14 September, The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences will be hosting an event all about inspiring that simple but important question “are you ok?”

That’s because we support not-for-profit organisation R U OK?, whose vision is a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide.

Conversations that are geared towards helping people feel loved, supported and connected do make a difference. When family and friends show tolerance and understanding, it can make it easier for people to speak up, access help if needed, and access it early.

Join us for our R U OK? event!

Planning students – our future public servants – are strongly encouraged to attend. 

  • Where: Steele Building, Level 2 Courtyard
  • Date: Thursday 14 September
  • Time: 10 am

Morning Tea is provided, but please BYO coffee or tea and join us for a chat.

We hope that you get a chance to chat to people you wouldn’t normally talk to and feel inspired to ask “are you ok?” more often of mates who might need some extra support.

If you are every need some tips talking to someone who might be struggling, check out these tips: https://www.ruok.org.au/ask-a-mate. You can also access national helplines here: https://www.ruok.org.au/findhelp

We hope to see you there!
