R U OK? Day

Transport agencies were out in force on Thursday 13 September in support of national R U OK? Day. This day of action reminds us to ask family, friends and colleagues the important question “Are you okay?” and support anyone struggling with mental health issues.

Transport agencies across the state held BBQs and morning teas to raise awareness about how to ask this initial question. Guide Dogs NSW and Delta Therapy Dogs made a guest appearance at offices in Burwood and Lee Street (pictured), with their therapy dogs proving to be popular stars during morning tea. Lee Street also had guest speakers discussing topics including:

  • The importance of mental health
  • Maintaining work-life balance
  • Staying active to promote a positive wellbeing
  • Using team meetings as the ideal platform to connect and check in

Remember to look out for those around you! If you have a gut instinct that someone is not okay, trust that feeling and act on it by asking the question. If they are not okay, you can follow the four conversation steps below to support them.

If you are struggling remember that you can contact the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or a professional or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
