R U OK? 괜찮아요? Gwaenchanayo?

Next Thursday 8th September is R U OK? Day at Monash :) (and our AGM!)

>> On average, 1 in 6 people – 1 in 5 women and 1 in 8 men – will experience depression at some stage of their lives? (Beyond Blue, 2016)
>> Korea's youth has one of the highest suicide rates. Suicide is the leading cause of death among Koreans aged 15 to 24.

KASA will be set up at the Northern Plaza (where anniversary BBQ was held) from 12pm-4pm to help bring awareness to mental health.

We will be:
:) playing happy korean songs (see the poll)
:) Having a free BBQ with food and drink
:) Having a Wishing Wall where you write positive wishes and messages on coloured ribbon and tie it onto the wall
:) Having a Balloon station - write things/issues you want to let go of on the balloon then pop them!
:) Having KASA committee on hand to talk to at different topic tables (such as Kpop, Kdrama, Uni, Work, Relationships, etc)

Best of all, this is all free :) So bring a friend!
And see you at AGM afterwards!
