ReachOut provides a safe, online place for young people to chat anonymously, get support, and feel better. And, ReachOut's resources for parents and schools provide valuable information and advice to help them better support the young people in their lives.
We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of Country throughout Australia. We are committed to honouring their cultural and spiritual connections to the land, waters and seas on which we live, meet and swim. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to Elders past and present, as well as to those who are swimming with us. We recognise connection to Country as integral to health and wellbeing. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
We also acknowledge all people who have a personal experience with mental illness. The voice of people with mental illness is essential in the development and delivery of what we do through Laps for Life and ReachOut Australia.
