In 2018, the R U OK? Conversation Convoy will be returning once again to raise awareness and assist people in developing the skills to start a conversation with people around them who may be struggling.
The convoy will travel 14,000kms across Australia over a 6 week period, and will be making 26 stops, with free community events scheduled at each location.
First Stop - Geelong, VIC The first event will take place in Geelong on Monday the 30th of July 2018, from 7:30am-9am at Steampacket Gardens. Everyone is welcome, and there will be a free barbecue, children's activities, ambassador visit plus more.
At each site, there will be a free community event where people of all ages are welcome.
The events run for around 90 minutes each, and include information and activities such as interactive ways to learn the 4 steps to start an R U OK? conversation, ambassador visits, barbecues, kids activities, and more.
The convoy will finish up in Sydney on the 13th of September, which is the official R U OK? Day.
The R U OK? events are designed to help people learn the four steps of starting a conversation
This is a fantastic way to spread awareness, so if you have an event in your area, why not drop in and say hello (and if you're on the road and see a convoy of bright yellow cars, make sure you give them a wave).
