R U supporting RU OK? Day on Thursday?
Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington is urging local residents to support local events which aim to start a conversation that just might save a life.
The South Burnett Suicide Prevention Working Group has organised RU OK? breakfasts in Kingaroy, in the Town Hall Forecourt, and at Nanango IGA from 8:00am.
There will be people available to have a chat with, as well as helpful literature.
Most importantly, everyone is invited to attend, whether they are struggling with a mental health issue themselves, know someone who is, or just would like to enjoy a free breakfast,
Mrs Frecklington said the event was an important day in the South Burnett calendar and she was looking forward to attending the Kingaroy event.
“I have been a long term supporter and advocate for RU OK? day which is all about starting a conversation that may ultimately make a difference in someone’s life,” she said.
“I hope as many people around the South Burnett as possible take the time to ask someone if they are ‘okay’.
“I’d also like to thank and congratulate all the community organisations, businesses and individuals who have organised events around our region to promote RU OK? day.”
