‘Are They Triple OK’ debut

POLICE officers, firefighters, ambulance officers and SES volunteers have come together to share their stories about mental health and the unique challenges of working on the frontline during a launch for ‘Are They Triple OK?’
Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott, joined representatives from the three agencies to launch the campaign, which aims to increase peer and social support for emergency services workers across NSW to highlight that an R U OK? conversation can be life changing.
“Our first responders go out there on the frontline every day, putting community safety above their own, and they deserve the respect and support of each and every person that they are sworn to protect,” Mr Elliott said.
“Police and emergency services workers give so much of themselves in the line of duty, and it’s our job to ensure they have the best possible tools and support to look out for each other.”
R U OK? will provide free resources to foster a supportive work culture and address high rates of self-stigma identified within the services.
