We started the conversation with our colleagues and asked R U OK, in a meaningful way.
Connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing that we can all do to make a difference to each and every one of us - especially if we are feeling not ok.
Regardless of how well you know the person, we encourage you to ask the question R U OK? It is important to realise that a lot of people are suffering in silence and don’t tend to speak up. It’s ok to not be ok.
If you’re not feeling ok, talk to someone you trust. We encourage it to be an ongoing and considered conversation - if you start it, take the time to help and listen - not just today, but regularly.
Today, we took time out of our day to check in with our colleagues, shared a compliment with one another and to play a social game of ping pong. A shout out to Jo for winning the round robin and for being so awesomely creative in many ways.
