    Young people with disability are more likely to report personal concerns relating to mental health and are twice as likely to have experienced bullying in the past year and to feel sad about their life than their peers according to Mission Australia’s Young, Willing and Able — Youth Survey Disability Report 2019.

    For the first time, Mission Australia has analysed their Youth Survey data with a focus on young people with disability and how their experiences differ to young people without disability. In response to the findings, Mission Australia is calling for greater consultation and collaboration with young people with disability and more action to address their concerns, improve their wellbeing, and remove the physical, structural and social barriers that impact their lives.
