Dancing with myself - tips for meeting new people and making
Many of the young people we work with struggle to make social
connections, and often the last person they want to talk to about
it is us. So Monday night we're going to get our brainstorming caps
on and share our stories, tips and advice for meeting new people
and getting out of our comfort zone.
If you're working with a young person who's struggling to make
social connections, get them to check out our Getting Real session
on Monday night!

Young people helping each other help
Just last week ReachOut.com launched a new section of the
ReachOut.com forums, where young people are supported and
encouraged to talk about getting help when they need it, and to
share tips and advice for looking out for yourself and managing
tough life or mental health situations.
We have some awesome examples of young people supporting each
other and pitching in with support, ideas and discussion around how
people can turn tough times around.
If you haven't checked it out yet, it's a great way to get some
inspiration for the arvo!
The ReachOut.com forums are a safe
space where young people are encouraged to connect with other young
people who have been through similar issues and talk about these
issues in a positive productive way. The forums provide a valuable
support community for young people seeking to improve their mental
health and wellbeing, and can provide additional support between
sessions for young people you are working with.

and why online forums such as these can be a valuable space. Visit
