R U OK? have developed a mobile app to encourage people to spend more time with their family and friends and 'Konnect.' The mobile app, Konnect, issues interactive challenges that will get users reaching out to the people in their world in new and creative ways.

Konnect was developed in response to an R U OK? national survey that revealed around half of Australians spend two hours or less of their weekly downtime connecting with the people who matter to them - a concerning fact as strong relationships are linked to better mental and physical health and can help us navigate life's ups and downs.

That's why Konnect's designed to help people become more 'Konnected' than ever before by strengthening and investing more time in their relationships so they have the trust and confidence to start a conversation when a loved one's going through a tough time. In addition to the challenges, users will learn how to have an R U OK? conversation so they're ready whenever a loved one needs that listening ear.

Konnect is suitable for all ages and users will receive a personalised certificate after completing four challenges to show how 'Konnected' they've become.
