The statistics around mental health issues for Australian young people
Half of all lifelong mental health problems begin before the age of 14.
One in seven young people aged 4 to 17 years experience a mental health condition in any given year.
One in ten young people aged 12-17 years old will self-harm, one in 13 will seriously consider a suicide attempt, and one in 40 will attempt suicide.
Suicide continues to be the biggest killer of young Australians.
We must do better.
Labor will make TAFE courses FREE in trades and industries that are crying out for skilled workers. These courses will help 5000 Tasmanians into work.
Building and construction, hospitality, aged care and disability services.
Because we know what a good, hands-on education means to people who just want a good, secure career. And because these qualifications are in our growing industries, you can be pretty sure you’ll have a job waiting for you when you complete it.
