It is R U OK Day today and Josh and Maddie ask the hard question...

Today on the PowerFM Brekkie show Josh & Maddie dove right into R U Ok Day and asked the question that people are still too afraid to ask..."Are you ok?".

The show was packed full of special quests like star of stage and screen, Rob Mills called in for a chat about the mental health of people out of the job especially people in the performing arts. Take a listen to that chat below...

 Josh & Maddie thought it would be a good idea to enlist the help of a professional psychologist, Ann Marie. Ann-Maree is an award-winning psychologist and suicide prevention specialist who advises R U OK? on the formation of our campaignsHer work over the last 15 years with children, families, and adults has had a huge impact across Australia, and she has made it one of her goals to erase the taboos associated with seeking mental help, and to improve the lives of not just individuals, but entire communities. Ann-Maree specialises in the psychological treatment of patients with suicidal behaviour, suicide prevention, and group therapy for children, adolescents and adults who have experienced mental health issues.

 Another guest that the guys had on the show is Ballarat Mayor, Daniel Moloney. The chat with the mayor is awesome and a must listen. The guys chat about the pressures of being in politics and the public eye and what effect that has on your mental health. The full chat is below to have a listen...

 Finally, Maddie decided to share some of her mental health journey with the listeners this morning in the hope that people would hear her story and feel more comfortable to ask the question, "Are you ok?". Grab the tissues and have a listen below...
