1 in 4 young Australians are experiencing a mental health difficulty.
But there’s an even bigger problem: 70% of those who need help don’t get it. 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 for information and support. That’s where ReachOut.com comes in.
ReachOut is there – 24/7 – for whatever life throws at them. With tools, tips, advice for everything from dealing with exam stress to understanding how to get help for an issue that’s worrying them, ReachOut.com provides practical tools designed just for their needs, even when they don’t know what they’re looking for.
