R U OK? Day flags placed at The Entrance and Gosford

Central Coast Council has placed flags on The Entrance Bridge and Brian McGowan Bridge to support R U OK? Day.

Nearly half of all Australians will experience some form of mental illness during their lifetime and the Central Coast has one of the highest rates of suicide in comparison to other health districts across NSW.

Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan said the National suicide prevention initiative is a reminder for everyone to take the time to reach out to someone who is struggling with life.

"The last 18 months have been challenging for many people in our community and now more than ever, we should be checking in on our neighbours and loved ones to see if they are ok. Even with the current restrictions, you can still pick up a phone or set up a video call and meaningfully connect with someone," Ms Vaughan said.

"It's often the people around us that can best help us navigate life's ups and downs - one simple conversation really can save a life. Anyone can do it, and its proven to make a difference.

"The Central Coast community is a caring and resilient community and this R U OK? Day we are asking Coasties to keep an eye out for each other and check in with their friends, family, colleagues or neighbours and ask - are you really ok?"

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the Coast's community spirit is its strength.

"Council is committed to strengthening our community and one of the ways we can do this is by using our voice to help address social and health issues that are impacting our community and support those in need. I encourage everyone to ask, listen, encourage action and check in on those around you."
