Support young people's social and emotional wellbeing via online 1:1 chats
ReachOut is the most accessed online mental health service for young people and their parents in Australia. Our trusted self-help information, peer-support program and referral tools save lives by helping young people be well and stay well. The information we offer parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers, too.
We’ve been championing wider access to mental health support since we launched our online service more than 20 years ago. Everything we create is based on the latest evidence and is designed with experts, and young people or their parents. This is why our service is trusted, relevant and so easy to use.
ReachOut Australia’s Reconciliation Journey
ReachOut Australia's vision is for an inclusive, compassionate and cohesive Australia that embraces and is proud of its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
As a youth mental health service, ReachOut is dedicated to reducing the mental health inequalities that exist between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and other Australians. Suicide is the leading cause of death for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, with rates more than twice those of non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
ReachOut has a strong commitment to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to deliver an inclusive service that meets their needs and contributes to improved mental health, and social and emotional wellbeing outcomes.
