ReachOut’s annual fundraising event Raise Dough is happening again this May

This May, ReachOut is inviting everyone to get in the kitchen, get mindful and Raise Dough so that ReachOut can continue to connect more young people with its frontline mental health services.

Throughout May participants can host a good old-fashioned bake sale or an event at their home or workplace. There’s also an opportunity to go digital and take orders from mates online for a signature bake item. To get involved visit:

Raise Dough is an opportunity for the community to throw their support behind the one in four people in Australia aged 14–25 who live with a mental health difficulty.

CEO of ReachOut, Ashley de Silva, said Raise Dough is simple to get involved in and a good excuse to get mindful.

“We’re excited to get thousands of people across Australia baking to Raise Dough in support of young people’s mental health this May. Raise Dough is simple to be get involved in, and I’m putting it out there right now that there’s no shame in packet mixes!”

“70 percent of young people in Australia living with a mental health difficulty don’t get the help they need. All of the dough raised this May will help ReachOut to provide free digital support to even more young Australians who need help right now,” he said.

Whatever you choose to cook this is not only about fundraising, it’s also an opportunity to switch off from technology and distractions and bring a little mindfulness into your day.”
