Today I received the following email from our HES Coordinator:
Today is the national “R U OK? Day”.
“R U OK? Day” is a national day of action on the second Thursday of September (13 September 2012). The day is dedicated for people to regularly ask each other ‘Are you ok?’ The day’s goal is to raise awareness about the importance of connection and providing resources throughout the year. The R U OK? Foundation aims to prevent isolation and raise awareness about mental health and suicide risks.”
I had no idea that this day even existed? Pretty sure we don’t “celebrate” this day in Sweden. So to all of you back home! Check their homepage and encourages everyone to raise awareness by visiting the website
