A conversation can save a life

Ask.  Listen.  Encourage Action.  Check in.

September 10 is R U OK Day; a national call to action to remind Australians that every day is the day to ask, “Are you ok?” if someone you know is struggling with life’s ups and downs.    

For members of the legal profession, it is a reminder to reach out to our fellow members of the profession, now, and any day when a colleague is in need.   No deadline can be more important. 

For members of the profession who might not know where to turn, some wonderful and accessible initiatives have been set up to help.
