Young Minds Matter is the largest survey of child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing ever conducted in Australia.

The parents and carers of over 6,000 children aged 4-17 years around Australia were interviewed, and almost 3,000 young people aged 11-17 years completed a separate questionnaire in private.
The survey measured the prevalence, impact and burden of mental disorders, and collected information on use of services, and unmet need for services in both the health and education sectors. The survey also collected information on attendance and engagement with school, and participants gave consent to access NAPLAN test results.

As part of UWA Research Week Professor David Lawrence from the Telethon Kids Institute and the Faculty of Education will present key results from Young Minds Matter, and will also draw on findings from Student Attendance and Educational Outcomes: Every Day Counts and the Western Australian Aboriginal Child Health Survey to examine the relationships between mental health and wellbeing and educational outcomes.
