R U OK? Day



Today, we join the global community in recognising R U OK? Day, a day dedicated to sparking conversations about mental health and encouraging meaningful connections. In these challenging times, it's more important than ever to show support and let those around us know they're not alone.

As we navigate our way through the complexities of life, it's easy to get caught up. However, taking a moment to ask a simple question, "R U OK?", can make all the difference. It's an invitation for someone to open up, to share their thoughts and feelings, and to remind them that their wellbeing matters.

Take a moment today to reach out to someone you care about, be it a colleague, a friend, or a family member. Together, we can foster an environment of empathy, compassion, and understanding.

If you or someone you know is in need of support, please reach out to BarCare. BarCare is an independent, professional counselling service, which is available to current and former NSW barristers and their immediate families, and Bar Association members to help to manage emotional and stress-related problems, such as marital breakdown, drug or alcohol dependency and practice pressures.
