R U OK? day is today, Thursday 13th September,  everyone. It’s a simple question with a very powerful message. Let’s work together as a recommunity today and be there for those in need. 🙂

Its goal was to help reduce our national suicide rate by getting Australians to reach out and make contact with others.

Ask the simple question to someone near and dear to you – R U OK?

I recently shared a wonderful video featuring my friend and colleague James Freemantle of  REDgum Communications with his message about R U OK? DayJames Freemantle encourages rural communities to stay connected and be conscious of how the isolation of farming can impact on wellbeing. He also offers hope to anyone living with depression.

Black Dog Institute support R U OK? Day
In October 2012, I will climb Machu Pichu for depression and anxiety awareness. The Peru Challenge 2012 will run from October 20-31 and raise much needed funds for Black Dog Institute for the research and awareness of mood disorders. This is a cause close to my heart and I’m doing it honour of my Grandma who lived with depression most her life and also the many friends and other family members who live with this mood disorder. Please donate to my page and learn more about my adventure http://peruchallenge2012.gofundraise.com.au/page/Lovelly
