OUTthink – Craig Mack – How To Ask R U Ok?
R U Ok Everyday?
While ‘R U Ok? Day’ is in September, it is important to realise that we should make every day a day where you can ask if someone you love and care about is ok. If you can notice that they’re not being their usual self and you suspect that something is wrong, sometimes the simple act of asking someone if they’re ok can make an absolute world of difference.
Some people have an absolute knack of being able to just ask the question while others can find exploring a friend’s emotional state to be perhaps a little confronting. In this episode of OUThink, we’re stepping a little outside of our usual LGBT demographic focus to talk about how to have these conversations with anyone.
Joining us on this episode is Mental Health advocate, LGBT speaker and ambassador for ‘R U Ok? Day’, Craig Mack.
