R U OK Day

Yesterday was R U OK? day which aims for people to meaningfully connect with others around them and start a conversation with those who may be struggling.

To recognise the importance of the day and to break down the stigmas associated with mental health, Hansen Yuncken organised a BBQ at the Peacock Centre Construction Site.

The event was well supported by both contractors and the consulting team. A lead physiologist from the Department of Health spoke to the team about ways we can improve the mental health of ourselves and others.

No one needs to be an expert to reach out, just a good friend and a great listener. Please take the time to start the conversation with your workmates, friends, and family. You may not know it at the time, but the fact you bothered to ask might just be the difference for someone else.
