Sign points out importance of wellbeing
The famous Anchovy Flats between Karratha and Dampier are home to many interesting sculptures, but now there is a constant reminder to ask the important question of R U OK?
Made up of the letters R U OK and painted bright yellow with materials donated and cut by local engineering company KAW Engineering, the sculpture was erected last Thursday.
Members from community group EPIC gathered at the Anchovy flats to put together the display in the hopes it would help break down the stigma surrounding mental health.
EPIC chief executive Stephanie Soter said it was important to have the sign to be there as a daily reminder to talk about mental health.
“We felt it was important, not just today, for everybody to be aware of R U OK? Day,” she said. “We had KAW Engineering volunteer their time and materials to create the signs and then our EPIC team painted it with our participants.”
