Today is RUOK Day reminding us of the importance of checking in with friends and family who might be finding life tough at the moment. A simple conversation can connect us. : Ask, Listen,  Encourage action, Check in.

In recognising October as Mental Health Month, another way of supporting the mental health of those close to us is to sign up for the fund raiser One Foot Forward which is  A simple walking challenge.
