Today, National Centre staff were privileged to host an afternoon tea with Katherine Newton, the CEO of R U OK? Day.
Born from lived experience, R U OK? is a national day of action 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,” said Katherine. “Just a great listener. It’s also important to ask only when you are ready to genuinely hear however someone responds, and give as much time as needed.”
