ReachOut was started in 1996 in direct response to Australia’s growing suicide rates. We provide specially targeted information to help any young person who visits the service. When they visit ReachOut.com, a young person will be guided to practical tools designed just for their needs, even when they don’t know what they’re looking for.
Our mission is to deliver innovative e-mental health services that enable young people to take control of their mental health and wellbeing. Everything on ReachOut.com is developed in partnership with young people, making it relevant and engaging. Plus, it’s all based on the latest evidence for promoting mental health, making it trustworthy and effective. It’s a safe space for young people to learn about what they can do to get through tough times and, for many a chance to help others through their tough times.
