R U OK Day 2020: There’s more to say after R U OK

Today is National R U OK Day. It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the importance of checking in with family, friends and professional peers and asking – are you ok?

It is, however, important to remember that ‘There’s more to say after R U OK?’. You can learn more about how to continue the conversation here.

The team at Hamilton Janke Lawyers is committed to continuing the conversation about mental health and wellbeing.
