R U OK? Day 2021

R U OK? Day is Thursday, 9th September 2021.

It’s a national day of action when we’re reminded that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” if someone in your world is struggling with life’s ups and downs, big and small.

This year we have asked our team members, “are you okay?” via a series of informal events across our branches nationwide. Our branch lunches, breakfasts, and BBQs are our opportunities to take a break with our team and reset with a fresh latte, a bacon and egg sandwich, or maybe both.

If this year has taken a particular toll on you and your team, don’t be afraid to take a break and ask “R U OK?”. We’d like to point out that you aren’t expected to be a health care professional, nor to take on someone else’s load. It’s okay to be a person’s first point of call, to then encourage them to seek professional advice and care. Remember, a conversation can change a life.
