ReachOut Forums Suspension


by Luke_

It’s with a really heavy heart that we announce that the ReachOut forums will be suspending operations on December 31, 2015.

You might be thinking, “what does that mean?”

The forums and all of the conversations will still be visible online – you can read through anything you’ve posted and see all of the responses. But starting in January, you will not be able to create any new posts.

We’ve been honored to be a part of the lives of our 20,000 forum members, in helping them get through tough times, supporting them when they were low, and cheering on their successes.

So, why is this happening?

We had a grant end earlier this year, and we have not yet been able to secure a new one to support the costs of the forums. We are working on getting new funding, and we hope that we can re-open them in the near future. Until then, you can still read through all of the forum posts, and check out the fact sheets, stories, videos and more on

If you want to learn more or talk about this loss, check out the fact sheet or talk in the forums now, we're still open!

You can also find support from these great sites:

Ok2Talk (

Trevorspace (

ReachOut Australia Forums (

Thank you for making the forums such a special place!!!
