UrHere builds awareness of supports available to young people in times of increased stress, suicide risk and isolation.
It’s about young people knowing what is available in their community when they need support, and it’s about making connections and knowing how to support one another during times of worry and distress.
No matter where you’re from, your age, your ethnicity, or your experience, there are people out there going through something similar. UrHere is an opportunity for people to share their experiences and in turn help others.
There are a number of ways you can get involved:
- Follow the UrHere messages on TikTok: @wellwaysau | YouTube: @wellwaysau | Instagram: @wellwaysau| Facebook: Wellwaysau
- Look out for ways to get involved and contribute on social media.
- Share this messages with your friends, family or anyone you know that might need support.

UrHere is funded by the NSW Ministry of Health and delivered by Wellways Australia.
