Abstract

One third of young Americans experience mental health difficulties, often without seeking help. More than 90% use the Internet. Reach Out (www.reachout.com.au), an Australian Internet-based service, is discussed in relation to the role it could play in reducing stigma and increasing help seeking in young Americans aged 16-25 years.
