Shaw and Partners donates $300,000 to mental health support and suicide prevention charities across Australia.

 

RU OK? Day on Thursday 9 September was a proud day for Shaw and Partners with over $300,000 donated to mental health support and suicide prevention charities.

 

RU OK? Day, a day set aside to make a meaningful connection with someone you know who may be struggling. We all have people in our circle of friends, family, clients and colleagues who we know just may not be coping as well as they normally do. Reach out to them ask them “Are you really ok?”. This conversation could change a life.

 

As the impact of COVID-19 is being felt deeply across the nation with more people in our community seeking mental health support, Shaw and Partners was proud to announce the Shaw and Partners Foundation had committed $200,000 across 16 mental health support and suicide prevention charities across Australia.
