In Australia today there is an initiative to reduce the high numbers of attempted suicides every year. 65,000 people attempt suicide every year in Australia alone, and this organisation is attempting to reduce the number through this campaign.

Hugh Jackman has made a short video that explains the basic premise:




I've not lost anyone to suicide (thank whoever you pray to for that), but I have been that low, and when I was a teenager, I walked in on someone very close to me with a knife to their wrist. Basically I started screaming at them, and they didn't go through with it but I've carried the fear that I could lose someone through not being there for them around with me for years now. So, I'm asking you guys: R U OK?

This doesn't need to be just an Australian thing, ask your friends, ask your co-workers, ask anyone.
