Raise money for Kookaburra Kids and keep fit by joining the Skip4Kids challenge.

The Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation offers a range of programs specifically developed to support and empower young people living in families with mental illness.

Each service promotes mental health literacy and teaches safe, positive help-seeking behaviours, all while uniting young people from similar situations to ensure they feel understood and supported.

This cause aims to build awareness of the 1.1 million Australian kids living in families with mental illness and raise funds to reach as many as possible.

Help make a difference

We know that being social and active can have a positive impact on your mental health. The Skip4Kids challenge is a fun way to keep fit and learn new skills. Even better, it also helps raise funds for resilience-building programs that empower Australian kids to reach their highest potential.

Together, let’s leap towards positive change for kids living in families with mental illness.

Joining in is easy!

Follow these steps to make a meaningful difference:

 Fill out the form below to register your interest (Tip: The first 700 people to sign up will receive a free skipping rope/registration pack thanks to Defence Health.)

Set a target to help you stay on track for your goal. We challenge you to participate in one of the following ways:

  • Option A: Skip for 4 minutes a day during Mental Health Week (10th to 18th October). This option is ideal for schools and individuals.

  • Option B: Skip continuously for 4 hours on Friday 16th October (join the Kookaburra Kids team’s live-streamed event from 1pm to 5pm). Ideal for businesses and large teams.

  • Option C: Can’t skip? Skip into a healthy habit you can practise daily during Mental Health Week. For example, you could increase water intake, reduce screen time or practice mindfulness.

Once someone from our team sends you a unique code for your CrowdRaiser you’re ready to fundraise! 

Don’t forget to tell your family and friends why you’re participating in Skip4Kids and share the cause with as many people as you can via email, social media, phone call…the sky’s the limit! Ask those you share with to kindly support you.

Use your goal to skip towards a better future for these kids! Keep skipping and fundraising as much as you can in the leadup to your ‘Skip-off’ finale on 18th October! 

How Kookaburra Kids helps

We are Australia’s leading charitable organisation dedicated to supporting kids from families impacted by mental illness. Our mission is to improve the lives of young people by improving mental health literacy and encouraging positive help-seeking behaviour. 

We provide early intervention mental health services through evidence-based programs designed to help young people impacted by family mental illness. Our programs aim to reduce the stigma, build emotional competence, and increase help-seeking behaviours in a supportive and safe environment.  

With programs that facilitate open and positive conversations about mental health, we aim to reduce the stigma of mental illness to allow young people to live to lead fulfilling and happy lives.
