Reflecting young people's views on mental health


There is concern about high suicide rates for young people in New Zealand. But the challenge is that while young people suffer psychological distress at higher rates than other groups, they make least use of formal support services.  One of the reasons for their poor use of support services may be that is that there is a gap between the priorities that young people have today and way that many services are designed. The Mirror Project aims to understand young people's views about mental health and what kinds of support work best for them.

This research is conducted under the auspices of the University of Auckland.
