We’re looking for participants aged 16–25 to tell us about the various challenges you’re facing and how they impact your health and wellbeing.

We are conducting an online research survey for young people in Australia to tell us (anonymously of course!) about your concerns, stressors and the challenges you face. This research will help the mental health sector learn more about what matters to you, and how organisations like ReachOut might be able to help and support young people better in the future.

We are interested in hearing from anyone living in Australia, aged 16-25 years. The survey should take around 10-15 minutes to complete online. Participation is voluntary and completely anonymous.

Your contribution means a lot to us, and to say thanks for completing the survey - you could win one of 25 x $100 gift vouchers! Read the terms and conditions here.

Are there any risks to participating?
If you find any questions that are too personal or upsetting, you can leave them blank. You don’t have to respond to any questions you don’t feel comfortable answering. If you need someone to talk with, you can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14, Kids Helpline 24/7 on 1800 55 1800 or go to for online counselling.

How do I stay anonymous?
Your responses will be grouped together with other respondents. We will protect your information subject to any legal limitations. Any information that is made public (media, social media, academic papers) will be about the project as a whole and no personal information, that might allow someone to guess your identity, will be included.

How can I find out about the results of the research?
A summary of the findings will be made available online on the ReachOut website when the project is completed. If you choose we can let you know the details when this is available. The results may also be presented at academic conferences and published in research journals.

Who do I contact if I have questions or want to withdraw from the study?
If you have any questions about the survey, or you want to withdraw your consent to participate in the study, please email our Director of Research and Impact, Karen Wilcox, at If you have any concerns or complaints about the ethical conduct of this research, learn more here.
