One in five Australians experience a mental illness in any given year.

In support of R U OK? Day, RRT volunteers from Picton and Mt. Gambier served meals and sparked conversations with tradies in Wollondilly, and students at Tenison Woods College respectively.

R U OK? inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with those in their world who may be facing difficult times in their lives. It is a harm prevention charity that encourages people to  stay connected and have conversations, encouraging people to invest more time in their personal relationships and informal support networks.
