Thursday 10th September is R U OK? Day

R U OK? Day on Thursday 10th September is our national day of action, dedicated to reminding everyone that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?”

This year’s message is “There’s more to say after R U OK?”.

You don’t have to be an expert to keep the conversation going when someone says they’re not OK.  By knowing what to say you can help someone feel supported and access appropriate help long before they’re in crisis, which could change their life.

The ruok.org.au website has resources to help you start these conversations.

Our GPs are also here to support you through COVID-19 and any challenging personal or mental health issue such as stress, grief, anxiety, depression and substance misuse.  Regardless of age, gender identity, gender expression, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation, our GPs respect your right to be heard, understood and cared for.

Please call (03) 9629 1414 to make an Telehealth appointment with one of our highly trained GPs if you would like to have a chat about your mental health. Consultation fees may apply.

For after-hours support call Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636 or LifeLine on 13 11 14 and if you’re in immediate danger, call Emergency Services on 000.
