R U OK? Day 2023

R U OK? Day this year is on Thursday 14 September 2023 and is the national day of action, when we remind Australians that every day is the day to ask, ‘are you OK?’ and start a meaningful conversation whenever they spot the signs that someone they care about might be struggling with life.

Evidence shows that if someone is asked if they are okay they are much less likely to have suicidal thoughts, feelings or actions. Learn more by watching the video below.

Depression affects around 1 in every 6 people in Australia, but did you know that Exercise can help manage the effects and help to reduce severity of the disease?

Studies have shown that ongoing regular exercise has been found to be equally as effective as antidepressant medication in treatment of mild to moderate depression. If you, or anyone you know, suffers from depression you could benefit from seeing an Exercise Physiologist. Get in touch with us at ProHealth Exercise Physiology to see how we can help you to start making a positive change in your life.

You can register with R U OK? Day by visiting their website on https://www.ruok.org.au/ to access resources including posters, the Guide to Supporting R U OK?, activity sheets, videos and more. You’ll also receive a reminder and a link to the 2023 R U OK? Day virtual event where we’ll share real stories as well as tips on how you can be here to hear for those you care about. You can also wear a splash of yellow on the 14th September to show people you are here to hear!

I have been a client with ProHealth for the last two-plus years. I have several chronic conditions, and working with Robbie Brokenshire and the ProHealth team has enabled me to lead a relatively everyday life.I would undoubtedly recommend ProHealth to anyone.

Awesome trainers. Friendly staff. Great facilities. As a retired Veteran I 100% recommend to any Veterans or members of the public. They can tailor the exercise packages to meet a variety of needs. Thanks to Brooke (my PT) and the whole team.

Would 100% recommend Steph at ProHealth. My son who has special needs attends once a week for exercise physiology classes and Steph is fantastic. She is kind, friendly and great at her job. James feels very comfortable with her and he is making great progress.
