ReachOut.com offers a range of options for young people aged 12–25, with a focus on supporting their mental health and wellbeing through everyday issues and tough times.
Right now, one in four young people in Australia is living with a mental health difficulty.
But there’s an even bigger problem: 70% of those who need help don’t get it, and suicide remains the leading cause of death for young Australians aged 14–25. That means more young people die by suicide each year than by road accident, cancer or acts of violence.
The good news: we can change this. After friends and family, the internet is the first place young people turn to for information and support. That’s where ReachOut.com comes in.
Seeking help is a big step, and speaking to a GP or mental health professional can be difficult.
ReachOut is free, anonymous and available 24/7 and has no waitlists.
ReachOut is built with young people for young people. Offering information, self-help, peer support and pathways to other services for further help.
