Better connections can work wonders

World Suicide Prevention Day asks that we make contact with someone who may need little more than a friendly R U OK? call to prevent them going over the edge.  In Better connections will save many lives, Jaelea Skehan, Newcastle Herald (9.0914) “encourages people to reach out and connect – with their community, with services, with people.”  “Our connection to others is what builds us up and keeps us strong.  Having people sit beside us when times are good and when times are bad can make all the difference.” For more information on how to ask R U OK, visit http://www.ruok.org.au.  For more information on how to talk about suicide, visit conversationsmatter.com.au.  Read the full story at: http://www.theherald.com.au/story/2547935/suicide-research-in-practice-better-connections-will-save-many-lives/?cs=308
