Wellbeing of WA children and young people
More than 16,500 children and young people took part in the Commissioner's Speaking Out Survey 2021 on how they see their wellbeing. While most students rated their overall wellbeing positively, there are concerns when it comes to mental health and safety.
The Indicators of Wellbeing is a practical resource that provides a single, collated overview of the wellbeing of WA’s children and young people and helps to identify what is working and where changes in policies and practices are required. This data is updated regularly.
