R U OK?

R U OK?

Got a feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More frustration or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust that gut instinct and act on it. Learn more about the signs and when it’s time to ask R U OK? here.

R U OK

R U OK is a national suicide prevention campaign that aims to inspire and empire all to reconnect with those whom we have lost touch that might be struggling with life.

2020 is the quite unprecedented year for the world especially for Australians to live with COVID-19 restriction of varying levels remain in place across Australia and is likely to remain indefinitely until the vaccine. It is now even more important that we all promote a sense of community, reach out and ask our friends, family and colleagues, “Are you OK?”.

R U OK Check in

Remember to trust the signs. Be aware of any changes in online behaviour or the way people communicate:

  • Consider the tone and language they’re using
  • Are they posting more or less?
  • Are they answering your calls?
  • Are they communicating as you would expect?

If you are concerned about someone, trust your gut and ask “Are you OK?”. Listen with an open mind to what they have to say and ask them what you can do to help. In the current circumstances, there might be limits on what you can do but you can definitely be a listening ear and a (virtual) shoulder to lean on.

R U OK Day

For more detailed information about the signs someone might be struggling and how to have an R U OK? conversation visit our How to Ask page.

Most importantly, don’t just leave the conversation there; it’s vital to follow up.

You can do that in lots of ways: phone calls and messages (not just to check in on them but to chat and connect), going for a walk together, leaving a cooked dinner on their doorstep, and continuing to direct them to the help available to them.

Stage 4: Restrictions Melbourne Metro

COVID-19 Stage 4 Overview

We are closely monitoring the situation daily and constantly revision and updating company policies and procedures to keep our staff, clients and the greater community safe. If any of our staff have any flu symptoms, they must cease work immediately and get tested while waiting for tests they are forced to stay at home and not permitted to leave for any reason what so ever. Thus far Australia wide as of 7:12 am on 18th August 2020 we have had 4 technicians go in for testing, one in SA and three in Victoria all came back as negative, to our knowledge we have been responsible for zero community transmissions and zero COVID-19 cases. After dealing with virus outbreaks for the last 20 years we understand the social dynamics and life cycles of these epidemics. As an organisation have gone over and above the government regulations and are working on new technologies to keep serving our clients with the highest standards of quality and service long into this pandemic.

We would like to update you regarding the stage 4 restrictions imposed by Daniel Andrews government on the state of Victoria since Midnight 5th August 2020. We will be closely screening all clients that they are clear from any flu symptoms or been into contact with anyone that is confirmed to have the COVID-19 virus. The great news is you can still get your computer fixed in Victoria, all other states are not affected and running as per normal, we have a number of flexible options for you;

1) Remote desktop support, for any software configuration issues we can log in remotely via the internet and fix them.

2) Contact-less computer repairs. We will book a time when a technician will come to your work or home, once the technician arrives they will call you. You are then required to put the equipment outside. The technician will take the equipment away assess it and then get back to you with some options for repairing it. Once the repairs are complete the technician will return the computer back to you.

3) Sendle - DIY send it in. You can book a Sendle pickup which we organise for the next business day. Simple call up and book the job, you then need to put your laptop in a box and we email you a shipping label. Attach the label to the box and a Sendle courier will pick it up from your work or home on the next business day. We will also arrange for delivery back to you once the computer is all fixed up.

4) Australia Post. You can register your details with us and then send your computer in for repairs. We can send it back once the machine is repaired and working like new again.

5) Onsite booking, this is only as a last resort if you need your computer as a primary communications tool or you need help with your NBN or VOIP phone. We can dispatch a technician with the full PPE outfit to you home or workplace to get you back online.
