Support when you need it

In a very challenging year, our community members have shown great resilience and character. It's been wonderful to see members helping and inspiring each other during the year by sharing helpful advice and their incredibly creative projects.

 

At Workshop we are really passionate believers in the power of community and how community can enable a sense of belonging, purpose and connection.

 

Supporting each other is key to getting through difficult times, and we are reminded on this R U OK? Day that support is always available when you need it. 

 

R U OK? Day encourages everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who might be struggling.

 

If you are having a difficult time, we'd encourage you to open up to someone you trust about how you're feeling. And if you've been dealing with tough emotions for longer than a couple of weeks, we would really encourage you to connect with a trusted health professional like your local doctor. If you need help or someone to talk to there are a number of helplines that you can call.
