Around 1 in 35 Australians aged 4-17 experience a depressive disorder, with 1 in 7 young Australians experiencing a mental health condition.
Evidence suggests that 3 in 4 adult mental health conditions emerge by age 24, and half by age 14.
The Fernwood Foundation plans to develop an adolescent mental wellbeing program, empowering the next generation of women.
The program will aim to reduce mental health issues in teenage girls across Australia.
