A group of our VCAL students have been working in conjunction with our wellbeing team to plan a week to support and remind our community that every day is the day to ask “Are you ok?”. The group have organised a variety of activities throughout the week, with an aim to promote awareness of topics around mental health and the importance of checking in with our friends and asking the question, R U OK?
Students will share the R U OK message and the steps involved throughout the week, leveraging social media to promote awareness along with a poster competition and balloon bouquet display. Our wellbeing team will have a strong presence within the weeks celebrations, joining our student ambassadors in wearing bright yellow t-shirts.
What you can do
- Ask R U Ok? – Ask the question
- Listen – Actively listen to the concerns
- Encourage Action – Who can support you with this? What adult can help you?
- Check In – Go back to the person and see how they are going, what action did they take?
