12th September, 2019 is RUOK? Day, a national day of action to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life. Learn what might be going on in someone’s life and what they might do or say when they’re struggling and need to be asked, “Are you OK?”. Some conversations are too big for friends and family to take on alone. That’s why you can encourage people to connect with expert support.
Check up on a family member or friend who has cancer or a carer. Feeling lonely or isolated is very common when you’ve been diagnosed or looking after someone with cancer. A simple message, phone call or visit can change how they are feeling about themselves. When asking the question whether they feel okay, be prepared to listen to the answer, that’s the important part.
