Reach Out!
This is a web-based service that helps young people to get through tough times by providing support and helpful information in a format that appeals to young people. Reach Out! also has a national database of services that can offer further assistance. While Reach Out! does not offer online counselling, the information and interactive features on their site provide young people with a good first step towards working through difficulties themselves, with the option of seeking further help if they choose to. Reach Out! combines factual information with inspiring stories about how other people have coped with difficult times. Reach Out! is an initiative of the Inspire Foundation.

Ybblue is a web-based national information service that targets young people aged 12 to 25. It aims to help people to look for the signs of depression, listen to the problem, talk and seek help together.?
