Are You Okay Day is an annual observation in Australia, celebrated on the second Thursday of every September. This year, it falls on September 8. On this day, Australians check up on each other, especially those who are going through a tough time. Since we keep too busy all year round, it is great that days like Are You Okay Day are observed to make us and those around us seen, heard, and understood. The day also addresses the crisis of social isolation and community cohesiveness. A question as simple as “are you okay?” can help save lives. How cool and life-changing is that!
