Art therapy can aid in gaining psychological insight that may lead to many therapeutic benefits including improvements in cognitive functioning, stress relief, self-esteem and emotional resilience.In continuing the conversation and checking in with ourselves for R U OK Day, participants will be invited to create colour feeling wheels. This simple art therapy activity will aid in self-awareness and is the start of moving the conversation forward towards supporting mental health well-being.


About R U OK? Day 2020

R U OK? Day is a national day of action where everyone is encouraged to check in with those around us and simply ask ‘Are you OK?’. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, highlighting now more than ever, how important it is to stay connected with each other. This year for R U OK?Day, UQ Life in partnership with the Student Services Counselling team have a program of online and on campus workshops and activities aimed at encouraging meaningful conversations with those around you and providing opportunities to learn how to support others who are struggling and continue a conversation when someone says they’re not OK.

Share your story

By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help a fellow student, family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they are not ok, you can follow our conversation steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. At the R U OK? Day Convo Corner we will support with facilitating the conversation and providing a platform for sharing stories. Simple steps could change a life!

Have your say
