Middle years

Research confirms that early adolescence, or the middle years (from nine to 14 years), is a critical stage in children's development; a period in which major changes occur at multiple levels of a child’s life.

It is also a time during which some children begin to engage in various risk-taking activities and when established symptoms of mental health disorders begin to emerge.

For up to date information refer to the Commissioner's Indicators of Wellbeing data resource.
