R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and are protected from suicide.
Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life.
Our goals are to:
Boost our confidence to meaningfully connect and ask about life's ups and downs
Nurture our sense of responsibility to regularly connect and support others
Strengthen our sense of belonging because we know people are there for us
We know that suicide prevention is an enormously complex and sensitive challenge the world over.
However, we want to prevent a lack of connection or lack of belonging people feel today, by inspiring people to take the time to ask "are you ok?" and listen. We can help people struggling with life, to feel connected long before they even think about suicide. It all comes down to regular, face-to-face, meaningful conversations about life.
