Why wait until young people are in crisis to help?
WE CAN ACT NOW
In 1997, ReachOut was born from a groundbreaking idea – to use the internet to make digital self-help available for young people. Since launching, the service has become the most accessed digital mental health service in Australia with 150,000 young people and parents accessing help each month.
Sadly, though, suicide still remains the leading cause of delay for young people. One young person die as a result of suicide each day. We have to do more.
This is why we have a plan to help an extra one million people by 2020.
And we need your help.
With your support, we can demand that digital self-help services like ReachOut are better integrated into Australia’s mental health system, ensuring that we make getting help easier, more relevant and that it meets the expectations and needs of young people and their parents.
With your support, we can reach young people and their families before they are in crisis. We can redefine what it means to provide the right help at the right time and better equip young people and their families when faced with tough times.
Together we can advocate for better mental health outcomes, reduce stigma that surrounds help-seeking and and work towards an Australia, where all young people are happy and well.

What is a monthly gift?
Put simply, your monthly or regular gift helps save lives and improves the mental health and wellbeing of young people every day of the year.
A monthly or regular gift is a tax deductible donation that is debited from your nominated account on or around the 17th of each month. By committing to a regular monthly gift, you can help provide young people with a better way to deal with difficult times. For as little as $12 a month, less than a movie ticket, you will have an impact on the mental health of thousands of young Australians. You will also join a community of people that understand looking after your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
