Reach Out Reads: Live Author Chats All Month Long!

ReachOut.com is a place where teens and young adults can go online to improve their understanding of mental health issues, develop resilience and build their coping-skills.

Reach Out Reads is a new campaign launching this month and running through the end of May (National Mental Health Awareness Month). YALSA has a list of recommended titles (a few of which are readergirlz picks too!).

Reach Out Reads will be streaming live chats with YA authors throughout the month of May! The first one is Tomorrow Night (Tuesday 5/3, 5pm PST/8pm EST) with the amazing Blake Nelson... click for more info:
We'll keep you posted on upcoming Reach Out Reads chats this month via the blog, twitter and Facebook. Enjoy!
