About Us

Who we are and what we do...

Talk out Loud is a not for profit organisation that provides targeted suicide prevention initiatives, activities and programs for youth and young adults. Our mission is to equip young people with the tools to maintain a healthy mental, physical and emotional lifestyle using a positive mindset approach. Our current volunteer team is a vibrant and energetic young team who are passionate about removing the stigma associated with mental health and connecting with their community. The more we encourage discussion around taboo subjects, the more people will be inclined to help themselves and others. We encourage young people to find their voice and connect with other like-minded young people within a safe and positive environment. These objectives are achieved through:

  • Exciting winter and summer camps

  • Secondary school retreats/workshops

  • Interstate & international volunteer workshops

  • Professional Development workshops

  • Working collaboratively with locally recognised mental health agencies

 

Our Mission Statement...

The misson behind Talk out Loud

Talk Out Loud's mission is to  provide targeted suicide prevention initiatives, activities and programs to young people and their families. Our aim is to empower every young person to find their voice, to connect with other like-minded young people and respect and value their life in a safe and inclusive environment.

 
 

What we do...

Empowering young people to find their voice

Talk Out Loud works tirelessly to provide quality, long-term solutions for a number of pressing issues affecting our community. Our most significant causes are those that are often brushed aside by most. Our battle is against the stigma associated with mental illness and overall indifference. We would love for you to become part of that change today; a change that will assist young people to feel safe, heard and included at all times.

We offer:

  • 1:1 non-clinical individual non-clinical therapy sessions by qualified youth workers

  • Motivational customised school presentations

  • Youth Empowerment Camps

  • Original theatre productions

  • Interstate and international volunteer experiences

  • Professional development and training workshops

  • Wellness workshops every night

  • Friday night social events for youth & young adults


Since 2016 our member base has grown to over 300 young people and their families, we have assisted over 1,000 youth on camps and retreats and reached over 4,000 students in our school presentations. Just over 70 people per week or 300 per month use our facilities for a diverse range of workshops and activities.
