In 1995, much-loved Barry Larkin was far from ok. His suicide left family and friends in deep grief and with endless questions.
In 2009, his son Gavin Larkin chose to champion just one question to honour his father and to try and protect other families from the pain his endured.
"Are you OK?"
While collaborating with Janina Nearn on a documentary to raise awareness, the team quickly realised the documentary alone wouldn’t be enough.
To genuinely change behaviour Australia-wide, a national campaign was needed. And from this realisation, and with Gavin and Janina’s expertise and passion, R U OK? was born.
Now over at https://www.ruok.org.au/ there are a stack of awesome resources that can help you follow up that question, 'R U OK?' with helpful conversation that cold actually save a life. Go check it out or take a look at some of these cards you can copy or print off as helpful prompts.
