One question can change the course of a life
It’s a simple question, but it can be one of the hardest to ask – R U OK? However for many people just knowing that someone cares, can be the catalyst for them to speak up and ask for help. As an R U OK? business partner, Corporate Traveller is proud to be helping to spread their message of staying connected through meaningful conversations to help suicide prevention. And while national R U OK? Day is coming up on 13 September 2018, it’s a message that is relevant 365 days a year.
Corporate Traveller staff and customers –– have raised funds to help R U OK? create The Mateship Manual – an information pack providing people with tips on how to start a conversation with someone doing it tough. With many customers operating in the in remote regions, we want to support the mental wellbeing of their employees – and the local communities. In June over 2000 manuals were distributed to remote communities in West Australia and a team from Corporate Traveller, along with R U OK? CEO Brendan Maher and a film crew, visited Port Hedland and Altura mine site to produce a very powerful video to promote the R U OK? message. Special thanks to ECG Engineering and Altura Mining.
