An accumulation of Dubbo organisations including Marathon Health, Compass Housing and Well Ways united at the rotunda on Thursday to prompt the community to "check in on their mates."
'R U OK?' day is a national action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask each other if they're okay. It supports people who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing.
Compass Housing Tenant relationships officer Heidi Stone said the aim of the event was to spread awareness and get people asking the question, 'R U OK?'.
"Everyone will know someone close to them that's had to make that decision to take their own life, and it's good to spread awareness to get people to ensure friends and family members are doing okay," she said.
"Especially now as we're facing hard times its just to get people involved and out there talking among the community and to push people to talk to each other because sometimes you can't tell when someone's struggling. You need to dig deeper."
"We've had a lot of people coming up and asking the question, 'R U OK?', and seeing how everyone's day is going which is good to see."
Marathon Health NDIS transition support coordinator Amber Knee said it didn't have to be on RU OK? Day. Just make sure you're checking in on your mates and asking them, 'R U OK?'.
"We like to set up in high-traffic areas like the rotunda so we can get as many people as we can coming through and we love people coming up and talking to us," she said.
"Don't be scared to reach out, check in on your mates and see how they may be coping.
"If anyone needs some extra help and you don't know how to do that, link them with their GP and just support them through it as best you can. The services are out there, just don't give up."
Anyone who may be struggling and feels as though they have no one they can reach out to, can call Lifeline on 13 11 14, Rural Minds on 1800 784 791 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.
