Mental Health in Newcastle

As a Newcastle-based mental health charity, we wanted to understand the size of the mental health problem in our area and provide a resource for people to learn more about their issues. Mental health is a huge issue in Newcastle. The rate of mental illness has been on the rise for the past few years. In 2017, for example, it was reported that New South Wales had the highest rate of mental illness of any state in Australia.

In Newcastle alone, more than 10% of school children have been diagnosed with mental ailments. These figures are only going to get worse as time goes by if we continue to ignore these problems and do not address them head-on. Mental health condition statistics are important for evaluating the status of people who suffer from mental health conditions. This data can be used to identify areas in which intervention programs are needed.

A recent study by Northumberland, Tyne, and Wear NHS Foundation Trust found that there was an increase in the number of mental health conditions among children and adolescents in Newcastle.
