RuOK Day

What is R U OK Day? 

 R U OK is a harm prevention charity that encourages people to stay connected and have conversations that can help others that are going through a difficult time in their lives.

R U OK day is focusing on building motivation, confidence and skills of the help-giver- the person who can have a meaningful conversation with someone who is struggling with life. It is important to have a conversation with someone if you are feeling down. It is guaranteed to help you if you are feeling down because it has helped me before too.

Why is R U OK Day Important?

R U OK day encourages people to speak about what has been happening in your life that is either making you act or feel that way. It's important to talk to someone so they can help you with something that has been going on. The key message is that social connectedness and positive help seeking can assist people in crisis and is a whole of community responsibility. 

Why do we Wear Yellow? 

Remember to wear yellow! Students of GSPS should wear yellow to remind them of the importance of asking "R U OK?" Yellow symbolizes optimism, joy, happiness and friendship. it also might stand for intellect.
