R U OK? Celebrities are sharing poignant and powerful messages for suicide prevention today

A simple question can change a life.

By Maddison Hockey
A conversation, better yet, a simple question, could save a life.
Today on R U OK? Day, we're reminded to take a moment to check in our friends, family, co-workers and everyone else around us.
In 2020, a year which has proved immensely and unexpectedly challenging, it's more important than ever to ask one simple question.
With many putting up a strong façade or a brave face, it can be easy to assume those closest to us are doing better than they're letting on.
"You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener," the official R U OK? Day page reads.
Some of our favourite celebs are speaking up and using their voices to ask: R U OK?
We've rounded up some of the most poignant messages from stars, below.
If you, or someone you know, would like to have a free, confidential chat with someone they can trust, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit their website here.
