Lifeline Macarthur and Western Sydney joined Wollondilly business owners and their employees at a free breakfast on R U OK? Day, Thursday 14 September.
The Dilly Business Brekkie at Victoria Park, Picton, was an opportunity to find out more about health and wellbeing and acknowledge the work of local businesses and their contribution to the region’s economy.
Wollondilly Mayor Matt Gould said, “As part of R U OK? Day we want to make sure everyone has the resources they need to stay healthy and have those important conversations with their workmates and staff.”
Local member, Judy Hannan MP said, “With one in five Australians affected by mental illness each year, it really is the silent invisible pandemic and R U OK? Day is another opportunity to bring this issue to light.”
President of the Picton Chamber of Commerce Geoff O’ Brien said R U OK? was the start of a conversation that could change a life.
“Let’s take some time to check our work mates and colleagues are okay and equipped to start that conversation.”
