Better mental health and wellbeing for all young people

Sadly, more than 1 in 3 young people living in Australia are currently experiencing a mental health challenge. And suicide is still the leading cause of death for young people - more than cancer or car accidents. The money you raise by taking part in Laps for Life will help ReachOut support young people through anything from everyday issues to tough times.

And, more than 1 million young people living with a mental health issue do not get professional help. Stigma and lack of understanding are leaving young people to cope alone. But we can do something to help.

By fundraising for ReachOut, you are raising critical funds so we can continue to help young people each and every day. Every dollar that you raise, and every person that you share your Laps for Life journey with, helps us get that much closer to our goal of better mental health and wellbeing for all young people. 

Every dollar you raise is extremely important to us -
here's what your money will help us provide: 

will help us connect 500 young people to an online session with a trained, lived experience peer worker this year
will help us provide 900 professional coaching sessions to parents to better support their teens each year

will help us provide 2.5 million people access to ReachOut's services each year
