Why wellbeing is so important

14% of young people met the criteria for a mental disorder diagnosis

and one fifth experienced high or very high levels of psychological distress, according to Beyond Blue

Australian students are more anxious about schoolwork compared to the OECD average

 with females, indigenous students and those from low socio-economic backgrounds experiencing the highest levels of stress according to research

Half of all the mental health conditions we experience throughout the course of our lives will have started by age 14

making a strong case for an increased focus on wellbeing and mental health in the classroom. Link to source
