I just found this out today it's a great day about suicide prevention here in Australia supporting the biggest Suicide charity there is.

The premise is simple simply as someone if they are ok.

I love the whole idea behind it asking if someone is ok is a great thing and it helps

Thought it would be cool TIL for those who don't know about it

Why not cut out the middle man and say, "you matter... don't off yourself..." if it resonates, cool. If not, then the other person will just think your weirdo and go about their day. Which is also cool.

Over here in the US we used to have 'To Write Love on Her Arms'... or Your Arms, or something. I can't remember exactly, I haven't really heard much about it in a while now. I think that it's nice that people do things like this, but I think the more important thing is for people to know that there are suicide prevention hotlines and the people will talk to you no matter your level of distress. I know they have it in the US but I'm assuming they probably do in Australia, the UK and elsewhere also. And if not, they really should.
