You are not alone

Covid-19 and the associated lockdowns are having a significant impact on our young people.

The Kids Helpline experienced 28% increase in demand for its service during the hard lockdown this time last year. The top five concerns raised by Victorian children and young people in July were:

  • mental health

  • emotional wellbeing

  • family relationship issues

  • suicide-related issues, and

  • friend/peer relationships.

We can assume much the same is being felt by young people right now.

There is also evidence coming out of Monash Health that there has also been an increase in school refusal throughout the pandemic.

Here at CSC our Wellbeing Team is also experiencing a significant increase in referrals and this has increased our wait times. We are prioritising students who are in crisis or at immediate risk of harm. We are thankful for your patience during this time.

Although many services are currently stretched, help is still available. Crisis support services can be reached 24 hours a day:
