We’re leading change, building social inclusion, and advocating for an Australia where all young people are safe, empowered, and surrounded by people that support them.

Life-affirming social inclusion

Through a preventative model of mental health support, we tackle social isolation by creating spaces where young people belong.

Education & advocacy

We transform communities through LGBTQIA+ training, resources, and digital campaigns that enable others to champion inclusivity.

Youth empowerment

We believe in equipping young people with the skills they need to be at the forefront of driving change.

Happy youth

Minus18 is located on the land of the Yalakut Weelam Clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples, Australia’s First People and Traditional Custodians. We acknowledge their continued connection and contribution to land, water and community, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded; this always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
