Help Us With Early Intervention

Prevent Suicides

Save Young People’s Lives

Make a Donation
What We Do

We provide free workshops in schools and clubs that allow young people to talk about their challenges without judgement and providing strategies to build emotional muscle with peer support.

Why We Do It

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged 15-44. 75% of all mental illness will develop before the age of 25. Support and education is vital and we believe early intervention is the best chance for positive change.

Positive Change

We aim to change stereotypes, reach out, talk deeply, and save lives. We want to show young people they are not alone and foster an inclusive, supportive, and honest environment.

Our Vision

Every young person in Western Australia will have the chance to participate in a Kai Fella workshop delivered through our partner Tomorrow People.

How To Help

We are 100% run by volunteers. Your donation will go straight to the front line. Each participant costs $25 and each workshop costs $500. Help our youth live more fully today and donate.

Building support, disrupting stereotypes, courage to talk deeply, get good help, and live fully

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged 15-44. 75% of all mental illness develops before the age of 25. What if there was a way we could avoid all that suffering and the associated tragic choices made. Having lost Kai, we'll always wonder what we could have done differently. The only conclusion is that there was little else we could have done when Kai reached crisis point. We wish there had been some early intervention available before he reached that point of no return.

At Kai Fella we support a peer based program. The program starts to build the skills so that our youth can navigate mental illness and crises that they or loved ones will inevitably endure in life. It’s a vital piece of education that is not available in our schools today.

Your donation will go directly to support the delivery of the program.

What a stellar effort by the East Fremantle year 8 boys’ blue team who managed to collectively raise a whopping $13,700 earlier this year in the Rottnest Island Fun Run 🙌! 

A special thanks goes to the boys, who not only fundraised on their own, but who also set up a stall to raise funds at the Palmyra Farmers market.

“We are in a position to impact and influence the lives of young men. Rather than just turn up to training twice a week & a game every weekend I wanted to find a way of impacting these boys’ lives & get them to do something for their local community.” - Coach Mark Austin, (@austo011).

1 in 5 Australians experience a mental or behavioural condition throughout their lifetime. Which means that if you are currently, or have previously suffered from mental illness you are by no means alone. This is why it is so important to talk to our communities and encourage young people to start talking about how they are feeling.
