Labor will recruit mental health workers to all Tasmanian public schools.
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.
