About ReachOut

ReachOut is the most accessed online mental health service for young people and their parents in Australia. Our trusted self-help information, peer-support program and referral tools save lives by helping young people be well and stay well. The information we offer parents makes it easier for them to help their teenagers, too.

We’ve been championing wider access to mental health support since we launched our online service more than 20 years ago. Everything we create is based on the latest evidence and is designed with experts, and young people or their parents. This is why our service is trusted, relevant and so easy to use.

Accessed by more than 2 million people in Australia each year, ReachOut is a free service that’s available anytime and pretty much anywhere.

About the role

In this role, you monitor and moderate online discussion in the peer support forums across ReachOut’s youth and parents’ services. You work collaboratively with the community members to build strong and safe online communities and to make sure the service users feel heard and supported by their peers. You communicate every day with the volunteer moderators who play a critical role in supporting and engaging the community. You will often be required to respond to high risk situations with service-users that will require sound judgement to manage the mental health challenges and the impact of this on others.

About you

This role suits someone who:

  • Has experience working with young people and practices clear boundaries and self-care
  • Has a good understanding of Duty of Care principles and is confident assessing and responding to levels of risk and harm
  • Believes in taking a collaborative approach and is committed to working as a team to develop creative ways to engage the online community
  • Displays empathy and compassion in their work.
