“For the first time in 15 years, thousands of Australian teenagers named mental health as one of the top three national issues in the 2016 Mission Australia Youth Survey. Personally, they’re concerned about coping with stress, school, body image and depression.I know that reading this is enough to raise our own anxiety levels as parents, but the fact that mental health is on the radar for our young people is a good thing. It means that there’s increased awareness around issues like anxiety, depression and suicide. This awareness will help reduce the stigma around mental illness and the subsequent discrimination which can stand in the way of young people seeking help and support when they need it most” – Dr Jodi Richardson
