The uncertainty we are all experiencing is challenging. For children and young people who haven’t built their coping strategies, it can be very difficult.
Australian studies are already showing that 1 in 4 children are experiencing higher than average levels of anxiety symptoms and that 5-10% may need specialised mental health support.
We at Big Brothers Big Sisters experience daily the increase in demand for help and are working hard to meet that need, however the numbers are overwhelming.
Give today so that all of our young people can be connected to a friend and role model that can change their life.
