R U OK? Day 2022

No qualifications needed!

R U OK? Day is Thursday 8 September 2022.

R U OK? Day is an annual suicide prevention campaign aiming to inspire and empower people to meaningfully connect with those around them and to provide support when someone is in need. The R U OK? Day theme this year is “Are they really OK? Ask them today”. We are all encouraged to Ask R U OK?, Listen, Encourage Action, and Check In. ​

At UQ we're joining in on the conversation, across all our campuses with activations at Herston and Gatton on Wednesday 7 September and St Lucia on Thursday 8 September. 

Explore what's happening and the ways that you can connect and support others by simply asking R U OK?

You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener. Use these four steps and have a conversation that could change a life, it's as simple as ALEC:

  1. Ask R U OK?
  2. Listen
  3. Encourage action
  4. Check in.

Find out more information at R U OK? Day website.

Join us for a range of events and workshops to encourage and inspire conversations to check in with your mates, family and people around you.
