Interim Report from the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental System

The following statement has been lifted from the interim report:

“The system is also failing our younger people. There is a compelling case for greater investment in the mental health of younger people, to prevent the impacts and consequences that could otherwise be felt across a lifetime.

Evidence before the Commission suggests that 75% of all lifetime cases of anxiety, mood, impulse-control and substance use disorders emerge by the age of 24 years. We must do everything to ensure the health and well-being of our future generations.”
