EXIT Australia is a non-profit organisation. Exit is a project of OHPI, founded in 2015 and merged into OHPI in 2023.
Founded in 2015 we have prevented more attacks than years involved across Australia and whether clients are located interstate, inside maximum security, or war zones internationally we have been able to achieve in helping them disengage from the use of violence.
Our central purpose is striving to assist those individuals who have noticed their increase in violence and are now seeking a safe exit away from this, we also collectively work with other organisations to support those wanting to leave groups that are of high demand or using coercive control against their members.
Our current board is made of members whom all have lived experience from high demand groups, Our team are all from professional backgrounds which include formers, psychologists, academics, veterans, occupational therapists and connected not for profits.
In 2023, Exit Australia and New Zealand merged with OHPI to further enhance the ability to ensure community safety and to combat hateful ideologies online
