New research conducted by the R U OK? Foundation shows that more than 90 per cent of Australians feel they should ask friends who are struggling ‘are you ok?’, no matter how though the conversation. The annual R U OK? Day is taking place Thursday, 11th September and aims to inspire the nation to speak out and help their mates.
‘This ‘R U OK? Day, the foundation is encouraging Australians not only to start a conversation that counts with someone who might be feeling overwhelmed, lonely or stressed, but also to be ready to give their time, show empathy, listen without judgement and help their peers identify possible steps. Also make sure you follow up.’

National Asthma Awareness week runs from 1st – 7th September.
During this week it is an ideal time to speak with your LiveLife pharmacist and assess your current medications or if you suspect you may have asthma.
It’s important that your asthma is well managed so that you can live your life to the full and do all the activities you want to. The aim of asthma management is to achieve best control.
Having ‘severe’ asthma means that it is difficult to treat, but doesn’t mean that you can’t take control, with the right medications, lifestyle and support. Someone with ‘severe’ asthma can live as well as someone with mild asthma – it’s all in the level of control.
