Life Education and Healthy Harold have joined forces with R U OK? – to ask Australian children, “Are they really ok?”
We know mental ill heath often starts at a young age. Half of all the mental health conditions will have presented by age 14.
As a community, lets get in front of this and empower students to check in with each other and themselves. These are the important building blocks to develop resilience!
We invite your school to participate in R U OK? Day by utilising these free resources.
