The mental health of young people is a critical challenge facing schools today

One in four young Australians currently has a mental health condition. More young people die from suicide than car accidents each year.  75% of mental illness emerges before the age of 24; 50% before the age of 14. 

Mental health is a crucial factor in both optimal academic performance and resilience against a wide range of risk factors for young people. Educators must be aware of, and understand, how mental illness affects young people, their learning and their school experience. 

In relation to Covid, compared with older age groups, young people have experienced high rates of psychological distress, loneliness, educational disruption, unemployment, housing stress and domestic violence.

The Mental Health in Schools Conference is specifically designed for teachers and school leaders, providing current mental health challenges for young people, findings from the latest research, and practical, preventative and early intervention measures.  

Share your learning with many of Australia's premium educators. A unique opportunity.
