ReachOut is Australia’s leading online mental health organisation for young people and their parents. Right now, 1 in 4 young Australians are living with 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 for young Australians aged 14–25 years. That means more young people die by suicide each year than by road accident, cancer, or acts of violence. The good news: we can change this.
ReachOut's practical support, tools and tips help young people get through anything from everyday issues to tough times – and the information offered for parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers, too. ReachOut has been changing the way people access help since it launched the world’s first online mental health service nearly 20 years ago. Everything is based on the latest evidence and designed with experts, and young people or their parents. This is why ReachOut's digital self-help tools are trusted, relevant and easy to use.
Available for free anytime and pretty much anywhere, ReachOut is accessed by 132,000 people in Australia every month. That’s more than 1.58 million each year.
