NEWCASTLE LIFESPAN TRIAL SITE

WHAT IS R U OK?

R U OK? is a highly recognised and well-received national campaign that is evidence informed and has a strong footprint in Australian communities. 

R U OK?'s existing campaign activities, materials, strategies, event ideas and other resources are freely available on this site. 

Supporting merchandise can also be purchased at a discounted rate by applying the code LIFESPAN. 

WHAT CAN I DO?

As an extension of LifeSpan's partnership with R U OK? - people living in trial site communities are being encouraged to complete Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) – an online training program that teaches people to recognise and respond positively to someone who may be exhibiting suicide warning signs and behaviours.

Whilst R U OK? can help provide some tips on how to have a conversation with someone who’s struggling, supporting someone at high risk of suicide requires some more specific skills. 

QPR is a great next step for people who are interested in actively contributing to suicide prevention. It only takes 60 minutes and is available for just $10 for people who live in a participating LifeSpan trial region. 

The discounted QPR online gatekeeper program can be accessed below.
