Empowering young people to find their voice.


Sadly, not all young people feel safe, heard and included—and this can lead to tragic consequences

It shouldn’t be the case.

It’s why, since 2016, we’ve been working tirelessly to provide quality, long-term solutions for vulnerable, young Australians, helping them find their voice and be heard. We achieve this through a diverse range of services, programs and projects made possible by our qualified volunteers and fuelled by charitable support.


Youth Empowerment Camps

We facilitate fun and relaxed weekend experiences that empower young people to make their own choices and ‘talk out loud’ about the things that matter most to them.

Real Talk

We encourage young people to become more confident by providing safe spaces for them to ‘drop in’ and share their stories and enjoy activities with youth workers.

The Hub

We create exciting opportunities for young people to connect socially with each other after hours and forge meaningful relationships.

School Programs

Our programs give young people strategies to find their voice, from school retreats to bespoke programs and even mental first aid courses.

What an amazing organisation. Their youth camps have helped both my daughters who now volunteer as mentors as a result. The team at Talk Out Loud have given my daughters so many opportunities which has helped them on their mental health journey and they now wish to help others as a result. Thank you Talk Out Loud.

I have watched my daughter’s confidence grow in so many areas especially the fundraising BBQs. She has also overcome her fear of going on camps and is positive and packed ready days before! A highlight of her time at Talk Out Loud was winning the Board of Director’s Encouragement Award at their Gala Ball earlier this year. She feels so accepted and cared about at Talk Out Loud and that is something I will be grateful for.

Talk Out Loud allows me to campaign and support for mental health awareness &suicide prevention. I hope my passion and openness saves lives by giving a voice and hope to others.
No one should have to fight their mental health battle alone...

It dawned on me how good you are at what you do, and how charismatic and inspirational you are. I see why young people want to work with you. You have a real gift, thank you and the team for running the retreat.

TOL is a fantastic organisation that has provided young Australians with mental health support. TOL to me has been a great support system and outlet for me to grow and meet new people. Struggling with mental health myself, I have been able to find a light at the end of the tunnel! I absolutely love being a part of TOL.

Hello and happy Friday!!!Anyone seen the movie sliding doors with Gwyneth Paltrow? My life has reminded me of that movie so much this week! One decision can alter the course of your life and it isn’t until further down the road that you can look back in awe and say “wow, if I hadn’t of said or done that, things could have been so different!” Sometimes it fills you with so much joy and happiness and other times it fills you with immense regret Unfortunately we can’t alter the past, I don’t think that technology has been invented yet apart from in movies and on tv… if it was though, I don’t know that I would want to! I have many regrets in my life but they are far outnumbered by the number of moments that I am incredibly proud of! Even my regrets serve their purpose as amazing lessons that combined with my proud moments make me the person I am today! Have you had sliding doors moments? Would you, given the chance, go back and change anything in your life? Until next week, have an amazing week! - Kerry 😁🏳️‍🌈 ... See MoreSee Less

Hello. My name is Kristie and I’m one of the volunteers here at Talk Out Loud. Very recently I have been working behind the scenes to come up with something new to offer at the office. As a result I'll be doing some basic massage for visitors and clients once a week on a Thursday from 10am to 1pm. How did I start massaging?When I was a child, one of our family friends was studying the massage therapy course and looking for volunteers to practice on. My mother signed up and it was during one of the sessions I happened to be home and saw how she did the massage and took an interest. As someone self-taught I picked up on the skill and applied it on family and friends over the years. It wasn't until 2020 when it was suggested I should apply for a massage course. I stepped up and enrolled in Whole Body Massage course through Discover Massage Australia and earned my qualification and am currently studying the next level of this course. I enjoy being able to help provide a relaxing experience for people so please join me on Thursday. Spots are limited so if you wish to make a booking please contact me via the Talk Out Loud Facebook page. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello and happy Friday!! I hope you have all had a great week!!For some reason this week has been a lot of memories coming back in an array of different ways but this week unlike other similar weeks I’ve had over the years it has been very catharticThe photo I’ve used this week came up in one of my facebook memories today and is over 20 years old but with that memory came the memory of having that photo taken whilst with my best friend who I am happy to say that not only have we known each other from 12 years old but we are still friends to this dayWhile out for dinner with friends tonight there were a couple of songs that came on that transported me back to 12 year old me and brought back wonderful memories of parties with my friends and an absolute feeling of being carefree This week has made me stop and think about who I was back when the photo was taken and just how far I have come, it’s made me realise that as I get older and as sights, sounds and other senses, transport me to a time gone by that I am now very much focused on the positive things in life! This is something I would not have been able to do, even 5 years agoMy life as you all know from reading my posts, has not exactly been easy and for much of my life I did fall into the trap of only focusing on the negative It’s taken a lot of hard work to shift my mindset, and whilst I can still be negative sometimes I choose not to live there for too long I have an amazing group of friends and family and their love and support has given me to strength to not only battle my inner demons but to be able to slay most of them. Like most people, I still have some inner demons I’m not quite ready to take on yet but I know in due course that I will be able to slay them too! It’s a nice feeling to realise that how I react to memories and events these days is much more level headed than the me you see in the picture, don’t get me wrong the woman in the picture was one hell of a fighter and she got me to who I am today! It’s almost midnight and way past my bedtime so until next week have a fantastic week!- Kerry 😁🏳️‍🌈 ... See MoreSee Less

We've had so many amazing people run fundraisers for us this year which has allowed us to concentrate on building our programs which are our top priority. We've seen our REAL TALK program triple in size in the last few months to the point that we're almost booked out 3 days per week. Our camp programs will also incorporate all THREE age groups next year for the very first time including more bespoke camps for community groups. And what's more exciting is that our Holistic Therapies program is about to be launched as well as a second site in the northern suburbs with plans to expand to a third out west later next year! Now without generous individuals giving up their time to support us we have to run fundraisers ourselves which we can't sustain so it's been such a relief this year to take a step back ❤️A huge thank you today to Rob Anthony who is organising the FULL THROTTLE event Feb 25 next year. As per his post below we're looking for business people to donate towards the 300 show bags that will be given out on the day. Just pm us if you need any more details. Please give generously and help us continue helping others 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
