Help us to give young people a brighter future

At Human Nature, we are committed to dismantling the barriers young people face to accessing mental health support. Our programs provide free, accessible, nature-based therapy that caters to the individual needs of young people in our community.

We receive no ongoing government funding and are reliant on donations to continue providing our life-changing support to disadvantaged young people in the Far North Coast. Every dollar makes a difference to a young person struggling with trauma and complex mental health issues.

We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilled life but many  young people in our region are grappling with a myriad of challenges including anxiety, depression, substance misuse, childhood and intergenerational trauma, socio-economic disadvantage, housing insecurity, disruptions to school life and eco-anxiety spurred by escalating climate-related events.

The upheavals caused by the pandemic and the lasting impact of the catastrophic floods of 2022 have compounded many of the issues they were already facing. As a result, school disengagement rates and youth suicides in the Far North Coast are alarmingly higher than the NSW state average.

We’re doing things differently

Our programs are tailored to the specific needs of young people in our community, providing them with accessible, nature-based therapy that supports them to overcome their challenges and gives them the tools they need to maintain their mental wellbeing into the future.

With the support of our donors, we can continue to help young people navigate their challenges and thrive. You can help us ensure young people in our community are able to access mental health support that truly meets their needs, setting them on a positive trajectory to become valued contributors to our society.

The other counsellors I’ve gone with, it’s like sitting in a room and just getting questioned. But just getting out, everything just flows. It’s not forced to come here and have to talk. We can do different activities too… life’s been getting easier, my emotions have been changing.
