R U OK?
R U OK? is a national harm prevention charity that inspires and empowers everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life.
R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and are protected from suicide. Gavin Larkin’s (R U OK?’s late founder) legacy is ensuring all Australians realise a little question can make a big difference to those people struggling with life. If your gut instinct is saying a loved one might not be doing so well, perhaps they're just not themselves or you've noticed a change in their behaviour, you can make a difference by simply caring to ask "are you ok?" and listening.
R U OK?’s work focuses on building the motivation, confidence and skills of the help-giver – the person who can have a meaningful conversation with someone who is struggling with life.
The Audi Foundation has partnered with R U OK? since 2017. The support of the Foundation has enabled R U OK? to travel across Australia, through every state and territory, as part of its Conversation Convoy. The Conversation Convoy has visited communities all over the country with the aim of giving people more confidence to talk to someone they’re worried about.
