Amalie Schreurs talking
Today is R U OK? Day. A reminder that every day is the day to ask, ‘Are you OK?’ to start a meaningful conversation whenever you spot that someone you care about might be struggling.
The theme of this year is “I’m here to hear”, to let the people you care about know you’re here, to really hear them. Here are some conversation tips on how to achieve this!
Be prepared for the conversation to let them know you want to support them
Find a private, quiet place to chat and be actively listening
Remove distractions and ensure you have enough time
Talk through ideas of what they can do to manage the situation
Check in regularly
Embrace any silences
Let the people in your world know you’re here, to really hear because a conversation could change a life.
