Naomi Watts Asks: R U OK?


Are you ok? é un’iniziativa nata in Australia con uno scopo molto semplice: chiedere alle persone che ci sono vicine come stiano, un modo come un altro per prendersi cura delle persone che ci circondano. C’è anche un RUOK day a settembre... ma, in realtà, ogni giorno è buono per domandarlo!  LANGUAGE LEVEL B2 (UPPER INTERMEDIATE) 

Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a difference. If you have a friend, relative, neighbour, or colleague who may be having problems, or who seems lonely, then you can ask one simple question: Are You OK? In Australia there is even a national RUOK day, which is on the second Thursday in September.
Obviously, it's just a simple reminder, but the idea behind it is to create greater awareness of those around us every day of the year. It is also designed to encourage human interaction in our digital age because, as the campaign says: a conversation could change a life. There's no need to wait until September: make asking someone "R U OK?" your new year's resolution!

RU OK? Day is a national day of action on the second Thursday of September every year. Let’s talk to our students and encourage them to speak to their friends, check in and ask them: Are They OK? One of our programmes is RU OK at School? So encourage students to get involved and sign up online today. It’s so important that we stay communicating with our friends and our family. Don’t be afraid, and don’t be alone.
