THANKS FOR NOMINATING US
We were proud to be a nominee for the 2022 Australian of the Year, we didn’t get further than the final 4 for South Australia in our category, but I can say it was a huge boost for our messaging.
In Australia deaths by suicide currently floats between 3000-3300 per year. Research reports that 50% of Australians who die by Suicide HADN’T sought any professional medical help for the health condition that cost them their life.
If you had a broken leg, someone would care for you and get immediate help.
We need to also get to a point in Australia that if you have a health challenge with your ‘mind, you get that immediate help too.
We need to nurture a ‘culture of care’ in this nation that extends beyond just physical health - that doesn’t discriminate against health issues of the mind.
Thank you for everyone who has helped us drive these important messages. Without the ongoing support from the Ahrens family we would not have been able to achieve the reach and influence we have had across South Australia.
As part of R u OK Day, we delivered the simple but effective messaging that teaches anyone to follow the 4 steps in the R u OK process. Ask, Listen, Encourage Action and Check In
