The young generation has the highest rates of mental health disorders among Australians.
There are factors associated with modern living such as a decline in face-to-face interaction, spending more time alone with their devices eaten up by screens, feeling lonelier and more left out.
However, there are more fundamental changes that had affected Young Australians over the last 30 years that are contributing to their stress. Today, young Australians finish their university degree with massive debts, struggle to find a secure job, and cannot even dream of buying a house. Compare that to young people in the eighties, they could study at universities without fees, did not have to stress about finding a secure job, and could afford to buy a home. You wonder why young people are facing an epidemic of mental health disorders.
