R U OK?Day is 11 September 2014 help prevent suicide

Community Event/Community Day

Today is R U OK?Day.

The event is designed to help prevent suicide.

It was founded in 2009 by the late Gavin Larkin, in memory of his father who committed suicide in 1995.

Here's the YouTube interview with Gavin which explains the history of R U OK?Day.


So wherever you are, Broken Hill, Melbourne, Australia, the world all over, please don't forget to ask those around you from time to time, are you okay? - R U OK?

Even if someone looks fine, they just might be depressed, and even on the verge of suicide.

Please don't forget if you aren't okay, you can call Lifeline's 24 hour 7 days a week crisis line on -

13 11 14

or in an emergency, if life is in danger, call  000

Alternatively, do speak to your GP, a friend or family member.

Ask for help, it's out there.

Stay well, cheers, Jane Deany
