This year's theme is ‘Connecting’, so we asked our staff to tell us what they do to stay mentally healthy, how they connect with the people in their lives.
Jaye - Cairns, QLD
Being grateful for the small stuff, spending time with family, living in a beautiful part of the world with fresh creeks, beaches and fresh air…nature is my medicine.
Kaitlyn - Townsville, QLD
That first sip of hot coffee in the morning after camping out at the track. The best feeling of gratitude and contentment.
Beck - Blair Athol
I am OK when I am out on my bike and all I can focus on is the road ahead - it's so good for a happy mind.
Jess - Canberra
Going out to the farm and making jumps to ride with my nephews.
Sol - Canberra
For me, I love riding my bike. Going for long or short rides just to help keep my mind clear and focused.
R U OK? Day is meant to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with those in their world who may be struggling with life.
You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener.
