Don’t forget to ask family and friends R U OK?
By Susan Johnson M (Couns) Associate Consultivation
The R U OK? initiative has done great things in getting work colleagues, students and groups to become more aware of and sensitive to low moods or potential depression in the people we engage with on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, the pressures of modern living, keeping up with daily responsibilities and the compulsion of many of us to continue to play with mobile phones, computer games and other electronic devices can result in isolation from those closest to us.
On this RUOK day try switching off (the gadgetry) for an agreed period of time and have a conversation with your real family and friends.
Compassionate curiosity creates compelling conversations.
