Lockie Cooke on checking in, mental health and the importance of meaningful conversations.

• 36 min

We're talking about checking in. *Content Warning - This episode references themes relating to mental health* This special episode coincides with RUOK Day in Australia. RUOK Day is a day that people are encouraged to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life.  I thought there couldn’t be a more appropriate time to have this conversation. My guest is Lockie Cooke, and he recently told me that checking in isn’t just about reaching out in tough times but about creating consistent two way conversations. Lockie currently heads up iYarn, which is a new health and wellbeing software platform. iYarn facilitates safe spaces and creates a conversation canvas for people to come together to have meaningful conversations I give him a call to explore how we can have better conversations when we check in. Follow Lockie on LinkedIn at and visit to learn more about the iYarn platform.
