Factsheet - What rangatahi want the next government to do about mental health

Facts, stats and what needs to change
Mental Health Foundation

Aotearoa’s young people want the mental health system to change, and they have good reason to – they will face long-term consequences of a system not suited to their needs. 

This factsheet looks at the mental health and wellbeing of rangatahi aged under 25; what contributes to their experiences; and what mental health policy changes need to be made to address their needs this election. 

This factsheet will be shared with Aotearoa’s political parties and the public, so we can advocate for change together.
