Introducing PeerChat!



ReachOut is doing something different! 


We're very excited to announce a new service that will connect you with a peer worker for a one-on-one online chat. 


Peer workers are people who have lived experiences of mental health challenges as young people. They've been on their own journey to recovery and use their experience to help others. 


👉🏽 If you're interested, you can book a free appointment here. 


What do peer workers do?
