Belgravia Leisure supports R U OK? Day on Thursday the 8th of September. It is a national day of action where we are reminded to ask ‘are you OK?’ and start a meaningful conversation to support each other through life’s ups and downs.
This years R U OK? focus is – Ask R U OK? No qualifications are needed because a conversation could change a life.
The work of health professionals is vital, and their value cannot be underestimated however, we can all play a role in supporting the people in our life. You don’t need to be an expert to have an R U OK? conversation. Listening and giving someone your time might be just what they need to help them through.
Be an R U OK? Workplace Champion. Build an R U OK? Culture.
At Belgravia Leisure, we believe there’s no health without mental health. Mental health issues are common and are the number one reason for Australians and New Zealanders to visit their GP.
Physical activity has a critical role to play in preventing the onset of mental health illness and its treatment. That’s why we developed a cutting-edge Mental Health eLearning Program called MHeLP.

Designed for the New Zealand and Australian leisure and community support sectors to equip our employees and volunteers with strategies to support themselves and others’ mental health.
