Today 'R U OK? Day' and World Suicide Prevention Day coincide.
We are being encouraged to check in with someone, reach out and meaningfully ask if they are okay, not just today but every day.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among people aged 15 to 44. In 2018, Australia lost over 3,000 people to suicide.
