Give a gift to kids like Samuel
Samuel is 12 and has experienced a lot of trauma in his life.
His autism spectrum disorder and ADHD, combined with this trauma, means Samuel’s behaviour can be difficult to manage. He’s been kicked out of a number of schools. As a result, Samuel is very socially isolated. He lives with extended family because home is not a safe place.
With Christmas coming up we try to bring Samuel and kids like him a little bit of joy at this time of year, joy that they may not get at home.

Orygen provides care to young people facing mental health challenges.
Some of the young people we support, and their families, face significant disadvantage.
When our clinicians realised that many young people would go without a gift or food this Christmas we knew we needed to do something to help. Please help us spread the joy so young people experiencing hard times will have a happier Christmas.
Buy a gift and share some joy
Your generous gift will help bring some much needed joy to young people in our care who may miss out this Christmas.
Send an e-gift card this christmas
Buy a gift on behalf of a friend or family member and send them an e-gift card to let them know.
Each gift is representation of the type of support and items Orygen may provide to young people in our community. Costs are approximate. Support will contribute to the our Appeal and the allocation will be determined by Orygen.
