It is estimated that poor mental health accounts for 10% – 25% of the education gap between advantaged and disadvantaged children.
After a year like no other, we know students are struggling to maintain good mental health and wellbeing.
That’s why, in this period, we’re turning our focus to student mental health and wellbeing. We have developed the below report, which examines the prevalence of mental health issues in Australian children, the impact of disadvantage, and how schools can work to support student wellbeing at such a vital time in their development.

- Grattan Institute
- Murdoch Children’s Research Institute & The Centre for Adolescent Health
