10-year anniversary of R U OK Day is September 13.

This Thursday is “R U OK? Day”, a day where people ask one another: are you OK?

Schools in the area involved with R U OK? Day include Goulburn High and Mulwaree High.

Goulburn High held an assembly last Thursday to support R U OK? Day as they had a special guest speaker.

“Motivational speaker Jonny Shannon talked about bullying, cyber bullying and resilience,” Goulburn High teacher Deborah Whiley said. 

Mr Shannon was also at Mulwaree High and the well-being teacher at the school, Callie Jessep, said it had hosted other activities too.

“We hosted a lunch in the school cafe on September 5 for community service providers in the local area,” she said.

“We will also be dedicating an hour of class time on Thursday to run a lesson for students on the importance of mateship.

“This focuses on how we can listen and supporting others, and what a huge positive impact that these things can have on people.”

This is the 10-year anniversary of the suicide prevention charity.
