ReachOut Supports Single Parent Families

Parenting on your own can make you feel proud, free and independent. But it can be hard to think about your own needs when you’re focused on your child’s.

You don’t have to do it alone, though. There’s support available if you need it. We’ve put together this handy guide to some of the info that’s out there. Some types of support may be as close as your own neighbourhood!

ReachOut is the most accessed online mental health service for young people and their parents in Australia.

Our trusted self-help information, peer-support program and referral tools save lives by helping young people be well and stay well. The information we offer parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers, too. We’ve been championing wider access to mental health support since we launched our online service more than 20 years ago. Everything we create is based on the latest evidence and is designed with experts, and young people or their parents. This is why our service is trusted, relevant and so easy to use.

Accessed by more than 2 million people in Australia each year, ReachOut is a free service that’s available anytime and pretty much anywhere.
