ReachOut is Australia’s leading digital mental health service for young people and their parents. The Audi Foundation is supporting the continual expansion of resources available to the ReachOut’s Parent Community.
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 trusted self-help information, Online Communities peer-support program and referral tools save lives by helping young people be well and stay well. The information they offer parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers, too.
ReachOut has been championing wider access to mental health support since they launched their online service more than 20 years ago. Everything is based on the latest evidence and designed with experts, and young people or their parents. This is why ReachOut is a trusted, relevant service that is so easy to use.
Accessed by more than 3 million people in Australia each year, ReachOut is a free service that’s available anytime and pretty much anywhere.
