Start a conversation this R U OK? Day



ADA NSW supports R U OK? Day: an annual initiative bringing awareness to the positive and lifechanging impact conversation can have toward mental health.

This year's message is:
Are they really OK? Ask them today.
Your genuine support can make a difference whatever your team, family and friends are facing - big or small. Don't wait until someone is visibly distressed or in crisis - make a moment meaningful and ask them how they’re really going. Your conversation could change a life.

Mental health resources for dental practitioners:

We'd like to remind all dental practitioners that free support and access to counselling is available to you and your family members through the 24/7 Dental Practitioner Support service. Call 1800 377 700 or visit www.dpsupport.org.au.

The NSW Government has a webpage with mental health resources for dental practitioners and their teams currently experiencing difficulties at this time. The webpage includes various free mental health information services:
www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/health-and-wellbeing/your-mental-wellbeing

Alternatively, consider visiting your GP to discuss your mental health. There are a range of Medicare-supported services that you can access.

Further COVID-19 support services are available on the ADA NSW website at:
