New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch

This year’s RU OK Day message is – are you really OK?

Do you know how the people in your world are really going?

Life’s ups and downs happen to all of us. So chances are someone you know might be struggling. Your genuine support can make a difference whatever they are facing, big or small, locally or globally.

So, don’t wait until someone’s visibly distressed or in crisis. Make a moment meaningful and ask them how they’re really going. 

Before you can look out for others, you need to look out for yourself. And that’s ok. If you’re not in the right headspace or you don’t think you’re the right person to have the conversation with, try to think of someone else in their support network who could talk to them.

To help you decide whether you’re ready to start a meaningful conversation, ask yourself:

  • Am I ready to ask the question?
  • Am I prepared for their response?
  • Have I picked the right moment?

You can find hints and tips to help prepare yourself at https://www.ruok.org.au/how-to-ask

Are they really OK? Your conversation could change a life.
