Calls for help double
CALLS to Kids Helpline have more than doubled in the 10 to 14-year-old age group since 2011.
The national counselling service reported young people are calling for a range of issues including anxiety, problems sleeping and online addiction.
The tween age group had the greatest first time mental health contacts to the service and Kids Helpline CEO Tracy Adams said it was encouraging to see the younger age group reaching out for help.
The helpline can be reached on 1800 55 1800.
