More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25. And yet, many traditional services aren’t equipped to address the unique barriers that young people face to accessing mental health support. headspace began in 2006 to address this critical gap, by providing tailored and holistic mental health support to 12-25 year olds. With a focus on early intervention, we work with young people to provide support at a crucial time in their lives – to help get them back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child in everything we do, including children in Australia. We do this by protecting and promoting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and working to understand the everyday lives of children and young people in Australia. We advocate for changes and improvements, at both government and community level, to ensure all children can reach their full potential by having access to their full rights.
