Thursday 10 September is R U OK? Day and this year’s theme is ‘There’s more to say after R U OK?’.

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, be willing to support those around us.

Given the current COVID19 situation, we will not be hosting activities on campus to ensure the safety of staff and students. Instead, we are encouraging teams to wear a splash of yellow, grab a cup of coffee or tea and host their own R U OK? Day Virtual Morning tea!

The HR Division are currently preparing a Virtual Morning Tea Pack which includes some great information from R U OK?, a video message from UOW Northfields Psychology Clinic’s Director – Mark Donovan, a call to action and some other handy resources. This information pack will be available on the intranet next week and will be advertised via Universe on Tuesday 8 September.

If 10 September doesn’t work for your team? That’s OK! Make it work for you! R U OK? Is a question that should be asked not just one day a year!
