Sometimes we say we’re fine when we’re not.
How are you?
I’m OK, thanks.

But, with 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem this year alone, if a mate says he’s fine, he might not be. To really find out, ask twice.

Are you really OK?

Ask twice. Be there for your mate.

“But what if I ask twice and they open up? I don’t know anything about mental health!”
Don’t worry – you don’t have to be an expert to open up about mental health. You can follow these 5 simple steps.

It can still be very hard to say I’m struggling, however when someone checks in, it makes me feel less alone and that people genuinely care about how I’m feeling.
