An Ireland where all young people are supported and empowered to thrive.
spunout’s mission is to work collaboratively with young people to support our mental health and well-being. We do this by creating evidence-based, person-centred digital solutions and safe, validating support spaces.
Life can be hard sometimes; we can feel unsure or even unsafe. We can find ourselves a little lost, nervous or worried, not knowing where or who to turn to next. We can all feel lonely at times too, alone with no one to talk to or in a crowd with no one to relate to. spunout is there for everyone as we travel our own unique journey.
We are here for you if you just need a helping hand or if you’re lost, low or lonely. Together we can drive away the clouds, lighten the load and find a clear path ahead. If it matters to you, it matters to us. You can connect with us for support. You can share what’s on your mind. With spunout, you can take a step to make your life a little better.
spunout is Ireland’s youth information and support platform, working towards an Ireland where all young people are supported and empowered to thrive. spunout has a range of free, accessible and free services that are there for you whenever you need them. If it matters to you, it matters to us.
Through our platform and channels, spunout shares factual information on mental health and wellbeing. We provide immediate, free and anonymous text support to anyone who wants to talk. We share the stories and experiences of young people across Ireland to amplify our voices, and so that we all feel a little less alone. We can also connect you to trusted services and resources around the country for further support.
Our aim is to support young people to be informed, feel empowered and heard, and to support our peers to access opportunities and services to help us achieve our full potential.
spunout is by young people, for young people and we work collaboratively with other young people to support our mental health and wellbeing. A community of young contributors and volunteers powers our services, guides the work we do, and ensures we stay true to our values and mission.
We believe in the importance of fostering and practising empathy in all of our interactions. By putting ourselves in the shoes of another, we hope to learn and seek to understand their thoughts, feelings and perspectives. We aim to create a safe and supportive environment where young people feel heard, understood, validated, and supported.
While empathy helps us to understand, compassion motivates us to enact change. Through compassion we seek to alleviate the suffering of others and be sensitive to everyone’s unique needs and circumstances.
Through representation and inclusion we are all invited to the table; through equality we are provided for equally; but it is only through equity that we acknowledge that people need to be provided for differently in order to achieve a just world. spunout is committed to an Ireland of equity. We recognise the systemic barriers that young people may face in accessing mental health support and aim to provide accessible services for all.
We believe in providing evidence-based, high-quality services for young people. We are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest research, trends, and best practices in mental health and youth issues. We take pride in the level of expertise that we bring to our work.
We embrace innovation by actively seeking out new and creative ways to approach mental health challenges in the digital landscape. We recognise that the field of mental health and technology is constantly evolving, and we strive to stay ahead of the curve by exploring new technologies, methods and interventions.
