Children’s Mental Health Week begins
Children’s Mental Health Week encourages communities, schools, parents and students to share knowledge on health and wellbeing for children. Mental health has increasingly become an international concern, particularly for children and adolescents. Issues such as lack of resources and support, fear and stigma have limited conversations from taking place around emotional wellbeing. Recent studies have shown that about 1 in 7 children and adolescents ages between 4 to 17 have recently experienced a mental disorder in Australia. As a society it is our collective responsibility to guide younger generations to be better equipped for their journey to adulthood.
