OUTthink – Craig Mack – Initiating the “R U Ok?” Conversation

The Importance of “R U Ok?”

With ‘R U Ok? Day’ observed in September, it’s vital to understand that every day should be an opportunity to check in on loved ones. Noticing when someone close isn’t their usual self, when something might be amiss, is crucial. At times, the simple act of inquiring if they’re okay can have an incredibly positive impact.

Navigating a friend’s emotional state can be daunting for some. Others might find it relatively easy to pose the question.

Expanding the Conversation

In this OUTthink episode, we slightly deviate from our usual LGBT-centric content. The aim is to discuss how to engage in these potentially life-saving conversations with anyone. Our guest for this episode is Mental Health advocate, LGBT speaker, and ‘R U Ok? Day’ ambassador, Craig Mack.
