Day, a day of action for health and wellbeing, and tickets are on sale now.

Set to be held at the Education First headquarters on Tongren Lu, R U OK? Day is a day of interactive workshops, workouts and forums led by leading Shanghai health and wellbeing practitioners designed to encourage people to reach out to those around them who they think might be struggling and let them know that people do care about them, there's no shame in not being okay and that things will get better.
