On Wednesday 9 September, POF held a morning tea to recognise and promote ‘R U OK? Day’ – a national day to facilitate social awareness and promote meaningful connections at work.
R U OK? Day is a national day of awareness about facilitating connectedness in society, so that those who need help feel they can ask and those who are asked for help know how to respond.
R U OK? is a really gentle message that is designed to promote meaningful conversations so that people have support networks when times get a bit tough. If you think something’s worrying a friend at work, start a conversation to see if they’re OK.
If they’re not, all you need to do is listen, and then help them think about what can be done to make life easier.
