If you are struggling with mental health issues you are not alone. One in 16 young Australians is currently experiencing depression, one in six is currently experiencing an anxiety condition and one in four currently has a mental health condition (16-24 year olds)*. The Youth Beyond Blue website is a great resource. There is information on many topics such as alcohol, drugs, depression, anxiety self-harm, self-image, suicide prevention, bullying and how to help family and friends who are struggling. There is also an online program you can do called Brave.
