New technology and its impact on youth mental health
In the past few years, it seems as if technology re-invents itself faster than the season can change. These devices have positively affected our lives but they have also started to create a rise in mental health problems in our youth.
According to Mission Australia, in 2016 about a 22.8 percent of young people between 15 to 19 show symptoms of serious mental health issues with suicide, depression and anxiety being among the top disorders.
CEO of Young and Well CRC Jane Burns, who was able to raise 35 million for the cause in 2010, joins us in studio to discuss the issue.
