Whether it is at work, home, university or at the gym never underestimate the power of asking “R U OK?” DEPRESSION can be a bleak and lonely place.

If your gut says something’s not quite right with someone, chances are that they might need a bit of extra support from the people around them. They might be acting a bit differently, seem to have a lot on their plate, or simply aren’t themselves.
