San Francisco —ReachOut.com, a place for teens and young adults who may be going through a tough time, took over the homepage of myYearbook, a popular place to meet new people and one of the top 30 most popular Web sites in the United States, effective Dec. 25.
The takeover marks the launch of an ongoing partnership between myYearbook and ReachOut.com, a project of the Inspire USA Foundation, a national organization with a mission of helping millions of young people lead happier lives. The goal of this partnership is to promote positive mental health and offer a resource to teens and young adults on myYearbook who may be struggling with issues ranging from depression and anxiety to eating disorders and self harm.
myYearbook has committed to giving ReachOut.com a homepage takeover every couple of months to promote different mental health issues. ReachOut.com will also maintain an active fan page presence on myYearbook.com as well as contribute periodic articles about a variety of mental health topics to myMag, myYearbook’s online magazine.
“ReachOut.com is a great resource for teens and young adults in need of support and advice,” said Geoff Cook, CEO of myYearbook. “The content from ReachOut.com will be an important addition to myYearbook’s online resources that encourage positive interactions and healthy lifestyles.”
“Partnering with myYearbook was a natural fit for Reach Out,” said Jack Heath, Founder and CEO of the Inspire USA Foundation. “We want to have a presence wherever young people are hanging out, often talking about the very issues we deal with on ReachOut.com, and myYearbook is incredibly popular with young people.”
