Now in its 10th year, suicide prevention charity R U OK? wants to reinforce that every day is R U OK?Day, not just its national day of action held each year in September.
R U OK?Day was launched in 2009 by founder and adman Gavin Larkin who tragically lost his father to suicide in 1995. Larkin (who died of Non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2011) wanted to spare other families the grief his own endured. A spark of an idea has since become a national movement aimed at encouraging friends, families, loved ones and workmates to ask the question of anyone they are worried about, in a genuine and meaningful way.

Mental health appointments can take longer and it is helpful if you can mention this at the time of booking.
