Day 4: We all go through a lot of changes in our lives. grief, depression, breakups, or just tough times at work or at home.
But when we build valuable relationships, we can see the signs of stuggles and reach out with the simple question. “R U OK?”. Whether it be a friend, family member or a colleague, checking in with someone does not require a qualification, it’s a fundamental part of human connection.
Today at PRONIA, we are celebrating “R U OK?” Day to increase meaningful connections with one another. While it’s important to celebrate our successes together, connecting allows us to comfortably share conversations about our struggles and support each other through them!
If you or anyone you know is struggling with their mental health, support is within reach.
