RIN hosts R U OK? Day breakfast
MORE than 120 people turned out to Resource Industry Network’s annual R U OK? Day BBQ Breakfast late last week, conveying the importance of checking in with friends and family. The network’s yearly event supports the national day of action, which aims to inspire people to start conversations and support those struggling with life, and particularly their mental health.
Attendees at the RIN event heard from two speakers who have been impacted by suicide in their families. Their message was about opening tough conversations with family and friends and utilising the resources of Mackay region organisations such as Grapevine Group. People were reminded that by starting a conversation, you may just save a life.
