Empowering rural communities to improve youth mental health and reduce youth suicide.

Youth LiveLife is a registered health promotion charity, bringing together rural and regional communities to improve youth mental health and wellbeing.

We do this by empowering communities to implement Live4Life, the only mental health education and youth suicide prevention model designed specifically for rural and regional communities.

Live4Life communities deliver Teen and accredited Youth Mental Health First Aid training in schools and the wider community, create local partnerships to lead conversations about mental health that reduce stigma, and promote young leaders as mental health ambassadors. Learn more about the Live4Life model.

Support us to create meaningful change in rural communities.

We currently work with six rural communities. With over 20 communities waiting to implement the Live4Life model, we are scaling in line with funding capacity.

Our work could not be undertaken without the passion, commitment, investment and foresight of our generous supporters. Please join us by investing in rural young people’s mental health, and helping to reduce youth suicide.
