ReachOut is Australia's leading online youth mental health service. It's the perfect place to start for young people who are not sure where to look. Every year it helps hundreds of thousands of young Australians with information support and stories on everything from finding motivation, through to getting through really tough times.

With a mobile-friendly site and forums, young people can access help, info and support no matter where they are. Everything on is created with experts and young people, so they can be sure to find resources that are not only evidence-based, but also relevant. It has tools and tips to make everyday life just a little easier, and they can't get the help they need on, it provides links to the key mental health services that exist for young people in Australia.

ReachOut Australia

ReachOut Australia is the organisation behind the service. It's a national non-profit organisation that was established in 1996 in direct response to Australia’s then rising rates of youth suicide. Young people are at the centre of all the organisation does – as partners in the development and delivery of all our projects. ReachOut Australia uses technology to reach hundreds of thousands of young people each year. Our work is evidence-based and underpinned by research and evaluation, conducted in partnership with academic institutions and research centres.
