Overview

The ReachOut.com ‘Getting Real sessions’ are weekly discussions on the ReachOut.com online forums, facilitated by trained peer-moderators. They take place every Monday night at 8pm AEST. The discussions focus on everyday life issues that impact a young person’s wellbeing, including sex, relationships, study, personal identity, sexuality and a plethora of other relevant topics. Young people can participate in the discussion, or like most, can simply ‘watch’ from the sidelines. In this activity, we outline referral and follow up to an online session.
