“Throughout my high school years I suffered from what I now know was depression. There were times when I seriously considered taking my own life. I couldn’t explain what I was going through to other people, and even if I could, I felt they wouldn’t understand. I felt alone in sorting out my problems, but I didn’t have a clue how to do this.” – Daniel, 22
The holiday season can be a really hard for those going through a tough time.
PLEASE DONATE TODAY
With the end of the year coming closer every day, you’re probably looking forward to enjoying some festive cheer in the company of your family and friends.
But, for an awful lot of people, this time of year can be a terribly tough time. And those living with a mental illness can find it especially hard. Surrounded by the joy and laughter of others, many find themselves plunged into lonely hopelessness. Like Daniel, they might feel that things will never get better. Nobody will ever understand.
For as little as $2, you can put help in the palm of a young person’s hand. Together we can ensure they feel less alone.

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.
