The Department of Children and Youth Affairs is holding a national consultation with young people on mental health and wellbeing during COVID-19.
How’s Your Head – Young Voices during COVID-19 will hear directly from young people about what they have found hard during COVID-19, what changes in their lives they would like to retain and what would help young people to improve their mental health and well-being over the coming summer months and beyond.
The consultation, hosted on, is open to all young people between the ages of 15 and 24 and will be open until July 3.
Since the onset of COVID-19 and its related restrictions, concerns have been increasing about its impact on the mental health and well-being of young people.
Research findings and reports from those in the youth sector indicate that young people are one of the groups most impacted.
The consultation will help deepen understanding of how young people have experienced life during COVID-19.
It will also provide valuable information that will influence decision-making on how society can respond during the next period of living with COVID-19.
