Got a feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust that gut instinct and act on it.
By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up.
Listen to WSFM’s Mike Hammond and Sean Frazer’s emotional R U OK? message:
If they say they are not ok, you can follow our conversation steps to show them they are supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are ok, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
