reach-out is a Partner of Youth Focus and Australia’s leading online youth mental health service. It’s the perfect place to start if you’re not sure where to look, with everything from finding your motivation to getting through really tough times. And with a mobile-friendly site and forums, you can access help, info, stories and support where ever you are and whenever you need it.







Are you feeling sad, angry, lost, or not sure how you are feeling, but you don’t feel okay?

Many young people have these experiences. Making sense of how we feel is hard for most of us, but during adolescence this can become even more of a struggle. The counsellors at Youth Focus are here to listen and help you with whatever you need. It’s great that you’ve taken the first step and want to get help.

At Youth Focus we recognise that everyone is unique and understanding where you fit into the world around you is part of being a young person. The counsellors will help you to understand the difficulties you are going through within the broader context of your life including family, friends, school and your local community – which can be your greatest supports – and help you to make changes so life is less of a struggle.

We provide our free services in a way that is “youth friendly”, flexible and recognise the individual need of the young person and their family.
