Towards a more connected world

R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and protected from suicide. Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life.

By inspiring people to take the time to ask "Are you OK?" and listen, we can help people struggling with life feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

About 8 people take their lives every day in Australia

Sadly, for every death, it’s estimated 30 people will attempt suicide

89% of people report knowing someone who has made an attempt

Every step you take in July can make a difference

By fundraising for R U OK? every dollar you raise and every step you take will help us empower more people to connect and support those who may be struggling right now.

Your support not only helps us deliver new campaigns, resources and programs to get people asking, "Are you OK?" EVERY DAY of the year, but also allows us to reach more at-risk communities. Your efforts will help show Australian's the life-changing power of a conversation.
