// What is R U OK Day?
R U OK? is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2009 by Gavin Larkin, whose vision was a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide. Accordingly, its mission is to encourage and equip everyone to regularly and meaningfully ask “are you ok?”

// Arc Wellness
Between classes, clubs, sport, and social activities, Uni can become a lot to handle. That's where we come in, helping teach you to take care of you so that you can take care of the rest of the stuff going on in your life!

// The Volunteer Army
The Volunteer Army is an Arc Volunteering and Professional Development Program that provides flexible, one-off volunteering opportunities, supporting local not-for-profit organisations. Whether you're an experienced volunteer or new to the scene, we'd love to have you join us! For more information, visit: http://thevolunteerarmy.com/

// UNSW Welfare Collective
The Welfare Collective will be working with Arc to provide different activities and initiatives during the day while providing support to the programs of the many wellbeing groups on campus.

Remember asking "R U OK?" could save a life and its OK to not be OK.
