Jimmy and Gus ask RU OK?

Thursday 13 September, 2018

Stations all over Australia featured interviews and segments  this week for the suicide prevention charity R U OK.

It is the 10th year of the campaign, which seeks to make everyone aware of how to look after their mates by asking a simple question of support.

On Triple M, Gus Worland spoke to Jimmy Barnes about how he has faced his demons.

"I am seeing a therapist every week... as painful as it feels, it's good to go through it, but I'm glad I had some help."

ABC Radio Tasmania asked is it really ok to answer the question honestly? Why do people still feel a stigma around honestly answering that question? And what do you do if someone you've asked says no, they're not ok?

Sarah Gillman spoke to a former Lifeline Counsellor, Mary Parsissons, and psychologist, Dr Tess Crawley about the day.

Mindframe has developed guidelines on the best way to use language aroud the topic of mental health. Read more here.
