There needs to be a greater investment in mental health services, particularly for young people, to ensure that those who are struggling with mental health issues have access to appropriate support and care. This could involve the development of new mental health programs and services, as well as increased funding for existing services, such as youth mental health clinics and school-based mental health services.
To address high levels of youth unemployment and underemployment, there needs to be a greater focus on developing training programs and vocational education pathways that lead to meaningful employment opportunities. This could include partnerships between education providers, industry, and government to develop training programs that are relevant to the needs of the job market.
To address housing affordability issues, there needs to be a range of affordable housing options available to young people, including social and community housing, rental subsidies, and shared housing models. This could involve partnerships between government, industry, and community organisations to develop innovative solutions that address the unique needs of young people.
