Focus point – Mental health

For young people in rural/regional areas – mental health is a huge focus point.

Some points from the discussions today:

– Young people are going to have sex, drink alcohol and take drugs anyway – the key is to educate them early on to manage the risks.

– The pressure of difference – how do you be different and stand out when you’re young?

– The pressure of studying, getting a job and contributing to society – is there too much pressure to get it all “right”?
