“Inspiring teenagers to start conversations is what will make a real difference to suicide prevention in Australia,” R U OK? General Manger Brendan Maher said.

“Our partnership with Brainstorm Productions helps us to engage and empower more students across Australia to ask one another “are you ok?” and make a difference in each other’s lives.” 

Jenny Johnson, co-founder of Brainstorm Productions said, “We wanted to work with R U OK? because it’s an inspiring and hopeful message. Our partnership will help more Australian teens recognise the signs that someone might be struggling with life and how to connect with them.”
