R U OK? A conversation could save a life
We proudly support R U OK? Day and encourage hospital pharmacists and technicians, and their colleagues, to maintain conversations around mental health and wellbeing amid a challenging year. This year’s key message ‘Are they really OK?’ is a great reminder to set aside time, as a department or a team, to check in with how each member is travelling and discuss ways you can all help and support each other. Whether in person, or through a quick call or text, every conversation helps. Your genuine support can make a difference whatever they are facing, big or small.
A reminder that the team of volunteer pharmacists at Pharmacists Support Services is available 8am to 11pm AEST, 365 days a year between via telephone 1300 244 910 to provide anonymous and confidential support to all of Australia's pharmacists, technicians, interns and students.
