About ReachOut Australia

40% of young people in Australia are experiencing mental health difficulties. But there’s an even bigger problem: more than a million young people with a mental health difficulty are not seeking professional support. And, suicide remains the leading cause of death of young Aussies. That means more young people take their own lives each year than die in car accidents.

After friends and family, the internet is the first place young people turn to find support. That’s where ReachOut comes in.

ReachOut Australia helps you feel better about today and the future, no matter what challenge you're facing.

It's a safe place where you can openly express yourself, explore what’s happening in your life, connect with people who understand your situation, and find the resources to help you manage challenges now and in the future. Anonymous, free and 100% online, ReachOut has been designed specifically for – and with – young people.

From one-to-one support from experienced peer workers, to online forums, as well as tips, stories and resources, ReachOut offers a wide range of support options that allow you to engage in the ways you want to, when you want to.
