  • One in seven young Australians experience a mental health condition
  • One in fourteen young Australians (6.9%) aged 4-17 experienced an anxiety disorder in 2015. This is equivalent to approximately 278,000 young people.
  • The number of deaths by suicide in young Australians is the highest it has been in 10 years
  • Suicide is the biggest killer of young Australians and accounts for the deaths of more young people than car accidents
  • Evidence suggests three in four adult mental health conditions emerge by age 24 and half by age 14
    Breakdown: Half of all lifetime cases of mental health disorders start by age 14 years and three fourths by age 24 years.
  • People experiencing mental health conditions generally report more experiences of being treated positively than of being avoided or discriminated against, particularly from friends, loved ones and family members.
