In conjunction with other material being provided by the Sai Medical Unit covering Sai Health Week, a webinar dedicated to R U OK Day has been produced. R U OK Day is an annual day set aside to remind us to look out for our fellows who may be suffering from various mental health related issues, such as anxiety or depression. The day is one that seeks to make us aware of an on-going need to be proactive in this care for those around us.
The webinar covers a range of topics and is targeted at all age groups from the young to our seniors. It is particularly relevant with today’s COVID restrictions impacting on so many. It offers advice about how to recognise some of the symptoms of those suffering and how to be a compassionate and sympathetic support.
A useful resource mentioned in the webinar is the RU OK website which has considerable information and links to support services and others work with RU OK.
