What is the state of mental health amongst our youth? While we've previously looked at the mental health and wellbeing of adults (see our previous post and infographic here), and today we're focusing on a snapshot of mental health and wellbeing.

The above infographic is based on a study of over 6000 households with children aged 4-17 years. It examines parents' reports of their children's mental health and wellbeing, as well as the impact on their functioning, help-seeking behaviours, and the role that schools play in supporting students affected by mental health issues.
