It's OK to Ask
We know how important it is for people to ask questions, get the information they need, and find their way round health and community systems. But it can be hard, especially when someone feels vulnerable or stressed.
'It's ok to ask' supports people to ask questions, and get the most from their visits. It also reminds services to welcome questions.
The 'It's ok to ask' resources (posters, pamphlet, games, video clips, workshop materials and activities) have been co-developed with consumers as conversation starters, prompts, examples, and ways to build capacity and skills. You can mix and match resources to suit your setting or purpose.
Resources are available in electronic and hard versions.
Email email@example.com for copies or links, or to discuss any of the resources and how they can be used.
