Reachout.org Launches with Input from MindFreedom International Youth
According to many studies, more and more young adults are reporting feeling more stressed and depressed this year. MindFreedom International Youth Committee members pitched in with Reachout.com to help make a video to educate the public about this challenge.

Enter Reachout.com a website dedicated to offering support from youth for youth.
Although there are many web sites that currently exist to support young adults going through tough situations, Reachout.com does it right.
The site is a library of support, stories and facts written by youth for youth.
At first glance at this beautiful site, the words polished and youth friendly certainly come to mind. This is because throughout the entire design process, young adults were consulted with, and even helped to design certain elements of the page.
Match that with a professional company, and the result is a site that can really reach youth where they are at.
Chrissy, a MFI youth member stars in one of the highly viewed videos. In the video Chrissy shows some of the art that she has made around town, and how it has helped her deal with her depression.
Matched with some fancy editing and fast paced music, the message comes across smoothly.
