It is R U OK? Day today and a timely reminder for all of us to remain vigilant about our loved ones and work colleagues.

Mental health issues affect a large number of people in our society and they deserve our awareness and support. There is also a disturbing high trend of youth suicide.

Often just having someone who will listen without judging, to get a hug, a smile, and to not feel totally abandoned and alone in fighting the black dog, is so very important.

When that big black hole opens and the anxiety and depression takes over, it is a huge battle to try to pull yourself out of it, and sometimes it seems futile to keep on trying, as even getting out of bed in the morning is too much.

So ask the people around you if they are ok, because many of us just keep smiling while sinking deeper and deeper in the hole of no return. You could safe someone’s life today!

R.U OKAY?
