R U OK? Day
08 Sep '16
Did you know?
- About seven people take their own lives everyday in Australia
- About 65000 people attempt sucide every year
- Suicide is the biggest killer of Australians under 44 years
- Men account for around 75 percent of all suicide deaths.
MIT is hosting an event in support of the national charity R U OK?
We believe that asking "Are you Ok?" is something we can all do to make a difference.
MIT encourages all staff and students to join in and start conversations to support those struggling with issues such as loneliness, depression and isolation, and prevent suicidal thoughts.
On Friday, 8 September 2016, MIT Melbourne will host tea party to initiate the conversation. Wear yellow and show your support for this cause. Get involved and show that you care.
Level 2, Exhibition Hall
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
