Mental health a key focus during National Youth Week 2017

Recent research indicates that 1 in 5 young people are worried about depression
and 1 in 4 young people are at risk of experiencing a mental health issue. It is reported that over
20% of young Australians (15–19 years) meet the criteria for having a probable mental illness, and
60% of these report to be uncomfortable in seeking help or advice for mental illness. Unfortunately,
many individuals who would most benefit from mental health assistance do not seek it.
