EquiEnergy Youth believes in a brighter future for young people, their families, and our community. We exist to save young lives. We do this by reconnecting communities and educating adult support systems to reduce psychological distress in young people. Just like DR ABC for a physical health crisis, our TAR3 Psychological First Aid gives adults simple steps to follow in a mental health crisis.


Connecting with the community

We are a NSW based organisation, and are all about reconnecting young people to the communities in which they live, locally and across Australia through our services.
