R U OK? at School

Something we're never too young to learn is that asking "are you ok?" can make a difference - and it's a message R U OK? wants to take into the classroom.

We want to inspire students to ask each other about the stuff that really matters and be there for one another when life gets a bit tough or stressful.

By giving teenagers the confidence to start conversations regularly and with real care, they can be the generation that transforms the way we look out for anyone struggling with life.
