The story so far for our young people is sad.. Suicide amongst young Australians is the highest it’s been in ten years -- it’s a bigger killer than car accidents.
For every seven young Aussies, one of them is struggling with a mental health condition.

Homestead For Youth has been changing this story for a while at their Meelon farm. Every week over 20+ at risk young people come through our farm gates to access a safe home, hands on therapy and to “Choose Life.”

However, our farmstead can no longer be leased so we need to buy the farm and we need your help to do so.

We are working hard to achieve a fundraising total of $1.4 million to keep our farm gates open for all young people and their families.
You too can help #ChangeTheStory on Youth Suicide by getting involved in one or more of our fundraising activities.
