R U OK Day
A conversation could change a life.
On R U OK Day, MIT encourages staff and students to start conversations that could change lives.
On Thursday, September 14 2017, we will be making this day with a morning tea.
You are encouraged to wear yellow on this day. For example, it may be a t-shirt, a tie or a ribbon.
R U OK? is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Gavin Larkin in 2009, whose vision is a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide.
Their mission is to encourage and equip everyone to regularly and meaningfully ask “are you ok?”
Surprisingly, there is power in that simplest of questions - “Are you ok?”
Who will you ask?
