One of RU?OK's new concepts, Let's Talk, was first used in Zimbabwe, Africa, and was called the Friendship Bench. This resiliency project will be similar, but will begin as a much simpler concept, getting peers to offer an ear to people who are suffering but are not in a position to seek professional help. The benches will be set up in parks, school cafeterias, malls and courtyards--using an existing bench or, if one is not available, using our own portable bench. The Let's Talk project is for people who are struggling and find it difficult to ask for help. They can talk with someone willing to offer a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on.
