Since 2010, we’ve experienced a 40% increase in youth mental health diagnoses. In that same decade, prescriptions of psychiatric medications increased by 50%. With suicide becoming the number one cause of death for young people today and half of the population now predicted to experience a mental disorder during their adolescence, this crisis should be a central concern in western society. Dr Dobud and Professor Harper sought to find answers as to what is driving this reality, and they asked the experts – the therapists, educators, doctors, scientists, and parenting experts – what can we do to improve youth wellbeing? Leaning on their 50 years of collective experience working with at-risk youth, this presentation explores the preliminary lessons learnt from talking to an international cohort of experts in parenting, mental health, and youth development.
