Welcome to ReachOut.com 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, ReachOut.com has helped millions of young Australians get through tough times. Despite 1.4 million unique users of ReachOut.com 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
“Thank you so much for supporting ReachOut.com.
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.
