Every single year over 2,100 people lose hope, and take their own lives. What's more confronting that is for every death by suicide, it is estimated that as many as 30 people attempt to end their lives. Suicide remains the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44, and it shouldn't be.
RU OK? day is Thursday, September the 14th and on this day we encourage everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life. Staying connected and having meaningful conversations is something we can all do. You don't need to be an expert - just a good listener.
If you notice someone who might be struggling, start a conversation to let them know they are not alone.
