Why your workplace should
swim to save lives
It’s a well-known fact: regular swimming is a great way to improve both physical and mental health, and overall wellbeing. Sign up to reduce stress, improve staff mental health and save lives.
It’s good for your rep.
Fostering a culture of giving and supporting charitable causes in the workplace leads to a more collaborative and trustworthy environment. Gather your team and support youth mental health.
Young people need you
Right now, more than 40% of young people in Australia are currently experiencing mental health difficulties, but there’s an even bigger problem. Over 1 million of them aren't accessing professional support because they simply don't know where to turn.
That’s where your workplace can change things for the better by raising essential funds to support ReachOut’s services which will:
Provide one-on-one peer support for young people to connect with someone who understands them.
Build a supportive community through safe, anonymous and moderated online forums.
Create evidence-backed resources on a wide range of issues and experiences that young people may face.
Don’t just take it from us. Hear from some of our workplace champions.
7-Eleven Australia CEO and Managing Director
The work ReachOut does to provide easily accessible online mental health support to young people is so important. 7-Eleven is very proud to have supported their work in our community for the past five years.
I’m a big believer in everyone taking time in their day to be active as part of looking after their wellbeing. Mental and physical wellbeing are so important. I’m in the pool most mornings to clear my head and get ready for my day, so Laps for Life is perfect for me to be able to raise much needed funds for ReachOut. Doing something I enjoy, that is good for me and supports such a worthy cause is a perfect fit.
Automic Group Head of Funds Business Development & Solutions
Laps for Life has been a great initiative to lead at Automic Group on behalf of ReachOut. It’s a great way to get our team together to support youth mental health but also take the time for your own wellbeing.
I’ve always had a passion for swimming, but often find it challenging to take the time and prioritise physical exercise. Mentally and physically, Laps For Life is a very rewarding experience. Every stroke and swim completed acts as a reminder of the lives we are impacting through the donations made by family, friends, and colleagues.
In 2023, Automic Group raised over $15,000 for ReachOut by getting in the water for Laps for Life. We’re proud to be a part of the challenge, and can’t wait to dive in again for 2024! I encourage all organisations or individuals considering participating in the initiative to take the plunge to support the clear vision provided by ReachOut to drive better mental health and wellbeing for all young people.
