Target: Jono Nicolas, CEO of Reach Out Australia
Goal: Increase funding to meet the mental health needs of Australia’s citizens.
Reach Out Australia is a rapidly expanding online organization built to meet the mental health needs of Australia’s younger generation. Recent data demonstrates the effectiveness of in-person mental health treatment versus online treatment, suggesting the latter is a far better alternative in every way. Increase funding for Reach Out Australia to continue the expansion of this incredibly effective method of treatment.
Billions of dollars in funding are necessary to expand in-person mental health services, most of which will still remain inaccessible to much of the population. Many individuals are simply too far away from such facilities while others would prefer to receive anonymous treatment from the comfort of their home. In contrast, an increase in funding for Reach Out would reach a far larger audience and cost fewer than $10 per person. Still, this number could even decrease further as Reach Out continues to expand.
Reach Out has already expanded its services to the United States and Ireland and continues to increase in popularity in a society constantly struggling to meet the medical needs of citizens in a cost-effective manner. Through articles specifically targeting the younger generation to shared personal experiences and excellent references to outside sources, Reach Out has the ability to expand further and save many lives.
Please sign this petition to urge Reach Out to increase funding and continue expansion in order to best serve the mental health needs of thousands of individuals.
Dear Mr. Nicolas,
I am incredibly impressed with the work Reach Out has done and the huge role the organization has played in addressing and improving the mental health of the younger generation. I urge you to increase funding and continue to expand Reach Out in an effort to reach as many people as possible.
An online platform for mental health can and will have a profound ripple effect. With the necessary tools, youth will become more informed and able to address their own needs and that of those around them. This widespread positivity can only grow as Reach Out expands, increasing effectiveness and gaining a wider audience.
Reach Out has already experienced expansion since its start and board members have expressed their desire to continue this trend. I urge you to meet words with action. Please increase funding for Reach Out and vow to take a stand for struggling youth.
