My speech in Parliament on R U OK? Day - Monday 17 September, 2018

Now in its 10th year, R U OK Day ? aims to nurture social responsibly and belonging encourages people to meaningfully connect with others, by simply asking RUOK. It’s such a simple message, a simple gesture that costs us nothing, yet when we ask someone if they are OK the difference it can make to a person who is feeling overwhelmed can be life changing.

Now in my electorate of Calwell, I am proud to have so many people and organisations who make it their business to promote RUOK? Day by holding a number of events on the day thus ensuring that as a community we are working together in promoting mental health and wellbeing.
