The organisation behind

From our CEO

Welcome to by Inspire Foundation.

Since 1998 we’ve been delivering Australia’s leading youth mental health service, making it easy for young people to get the help they need, where and when they need it.


Together with our valued supporters, has helped millions of young Australians get through tough times. Despite 1.4 million unique users of each year, the following statistics mean we’ve still got an enormous way to go as a community:

- 1 in 4 young Australians live with a mental health difficulty

- 75% of people with mental health difficulties will experience its onset by the age of 24

- Suicide is the leading cause of death for young Australians aged 14-25


In addition to these challenges, the stories from young people like Becca about the help they get from are why we do what we do:


“Thank you so much for supporting

Without what you have helped to create, I wouldn’t be here.” Becca 19


Please join us to help achieve our vision that all young Australians are happy and well.
