About the cause

1 in 4 young Australians is currently experiencing 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 of young Aussies. In 2019, 461 young people in Australia died by suicide.

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.

ReachOut is there – 24/7 – for whatever life throws at them. With tools, tips, advice for everything from dealing with exam stress to understanding how to get help for an issue that’s worrying them, ReachOut.com provides practical tools designed just for their needs, even when they don’t know what they’re looking for.

ReachOut helps young people get well, be well and stay well, provides connection and shared stories through peer support, and builds confidence to seek professional help, if needed.

And, even more than that, ReachOut helps the people young people turn to for support by providing information, peer support, one-on-one telephone support for parents and carers, and resources for schools and educators.
